Being a softball coach isn’t easy. You’re probably working with a big group of energetic kids, and just a couple assistant coaches or parent helpers to keep things under control.
Trying to keep all of your girls engaged and focused can be a real challenge. Especially if you're using “traditional” drills that involve lots of lines, lectures, and standing-around time.
Thankfully, there's a simple solution.
The Stations Based Practice!
It's easy. Just set up a series of "skill development stations" at designated spots on the field. Each one is managed by an individual coach or helper, and focused on a specific fundamental skill.
Then, simply break your team up into 2-3 small groups, and rotate them through the stations for a set amount of time.
It's simple, fun, and totally stress-free.
Your kids get tons of high-quality reps in a short amount of time. And the coaches can spend more time working with individual kids.
