Quick Release Drill (Guelph Minor Softball Association)

PrintQuick Release Drill

To get infielders to release the ball quicker we line up half the team 3/4 of the way to 2nd base and the rest wearing helmets lined up half way to 1st base.

A coach says “go” and rolls ball to infielder, she throws to first and tries to beat base runner who left for first on release of ball.

Keep drill moving rapidly 3-4 times through and switch players.

You may need to “tweak” where you start your runners until the plays at 1st get closer.
