Youth Softball Drills - Beginning Slide Drill



Purpose: Great sliding drill for teaching beginners how to slide.
Procedure:

Line up your players in a single line, space arm length apart. Talk to them about the cadence of the slide. Left, right, left, sit. Then have the player's start walking left leg first, right leg, left leg and then have them fall to their butts with the right leg extended and the left leg folded underneath in a figure four. Once the players get better then begin having them slowly run the three steps, left, right, left, sit.
