When working on any softball hitting drills for youth players, it is critical to have a good mix of drills to develop strong habits and the foundations of an elite swing. Most of the time, It does not matter if you are playing at the professional level or just getting started at a young age, good drills are good drills.



For those softball coaches and parents out there that are looking for some softball hitting drills they can pass on to their youth players, these four drills are a few of our favorites here at The Hitting Vault.

This is an excellent progression through the swing, while integrating the two prior drills. The hitter goes from a perfect launch position in the first frame to the point of contact in the third frame. When working with your softball player, make sure they are really working on perfecting the first two drills before getting into this one. You want to have a good foundation and feel for the swing before putting all of these movements together in the bat path drill.

The most important aspect of the slow to fast drill is having control of your rhythm. Really focus on slowing down the load and stride but exploding through the point of contact. This drill is a great way to round off this set of drills for young softball players because not only are these all simple drills, but also they are all important to becoming the best hitter you can be. These drills are done at all levels, as they are foundations for becoming a better hitter every day.

They say, "practice makes perfect" but practicing the same way day after day is not only boring, it's not productive. Here are 6 proven softball hitting drills that not only keep practice fun and interesting, they deliver results.

This is one of the softball hitting drills that is excellent for perception and aspect of the ball - it's a great hand-eye coordination drill. You will be hitting the smaller wiffle golf balls utilizing a taped-up narrow stick as a bat. The pitcher will toss the wiffle golf balls and the batter should practice hitting line drives or balls hit hard on the ground.

This is one of the softball hitting drills that uses a hitting tee. Once the ball is on the softball hitting tee and the hitter's feet are in the proper batting stance, a coach or teammate places the bucket of balls behind the back foot of the hitter. The drill allows hitters to work on and learn the proper transfer of weight from the back leg. The hitter cannot simply rotate their back leg while the foot is anchored. This drill will also give immediate feedback on whether the weight transfer is correct or incorrect.

When doing tee work, it's important to have a visual reference to help hitters with their stance. This training guide instills fundamental hitting concepts with a trusted visual aid and instills consistency throughout the tee drills in your movement and creating muscle memory. Understanding that the normal batting stance (i.e. front foot land) stays the same whether the pitch is in our out is an important concept for hitters. While the feet should stay the same, the contact point changes based on where the pitch is located.

By utilizing various softball hitting drills like the ones mentioned here, players can elevate their game, sharpen their mechanics of swinging, and strengthen their upper body while staying engaged during practice year-round. Keep practicing and you will be able to handle anything that comes your way!

As a softball coach, you probably spend a good amount of time putting together specific softball drills and practice plans. The biggest piece of advice we can give is to take the same game mentality into practice. Practice can get dry, monotonous, and players can lose focus. As a coach, we always want to focus on how we can structure practice in a way that enables us to talk less and do more.

Another staple in both baseball and softball is getting reps and throws from all positions and to all bases always. This helps increase arm strength as well as getting reads in the outfield and reps in the infield.

At The Hitting Vault, we believe that there should be at least four stations that you rotate through to run an effective softball hitting practice. This eliminates players from standing around and helps make the most of the short time you have available at practice.

One key thing to remember for any softball hitting practice is that quality always trumps quantity. Quality reps and swing movements in batting practice are much more important than hundreds of meaningless swings.

As Coach Lisle has frequently said, getting to live pitching as soon as possible is important to focus on in practice. At The Hitting Vault, we refer to the sequence of a good baseball or softball hitting practice as tee work, front toss and then live pitching. The tee work and front toss stations are great to focus on to get your hitters warmed up and feeling swing movements, and then you want to amp up the competition to live pitching.

Coaches tend to use the same drills over and over. That's especially true with softball hitting drills, which can get pretty boring for the players. And when players are bored they don't get as much as out of practice.

After a complete rotation of the hitters through all three hitting stations, one line can rotate to the infield spots and the infielders can come in to bat. Concentrate on hitting the top half of the baseball with a short, downward swing.
