After you've read that you can find excellent tips and drills from the eteamz site. The direct link to fastpitch softball tips and drills is http://eteamz.active...cfm?m=1,2,3,4,5
Look through those and pick out some you think will work best and then give them a try. You'll notice that some will be instant hits and some will flop, but believe me, even after spending the past 13 years coaching baseball and softball, I still try new things every year and quickly dump anything that doesn't work out with that year's team.
Having said all that, remember that the number one goal should ALWAYS be that your players have fun. Don't coach to win ball games, instead coach to ensure that every girl on your team is enjoying their time and developing a love for the game of softball.

The Eteamz website is also a great resource.
We also carry many videos here at Y-coach.com but most deal directly with the apect of pitching. Another video that you may find helpful is the 59 Minute Baseball Practice Video. This video is geared towards baseball but the basic philosophy will transfer to coaching softball. We also have a coaching database with many drills geared towards the younger group. I have added some links below for your review.
