As a coach you are surely aware that teaching softball is not a simple task, much more if you will coach youth softball. The main reason why youth decide to play softball is for them to have fun and can occupy their leisure time. Not all youth you have recruited to join your team are serious in taking softball as their profession. Some of them like only to make as their hobby.

Though, youth have varied reasons why they play softball, it is your duty as their coach to teach them all the basics of softball which they need to know first before they jump to the different softball drills. You should make them understand every aspect which can help them in becoming a good softball player.

Softball drills are grouped into simple and hard drills and exercises. Thus, if have a team compose of youth, you have to make sure that your softball drills are just simple so that they can learn it easily. Also, make sure that you will demonstrate every drill you will teach them. It is a proven fact that learning by doing strategy is the most effective method in teaching anything especially to the beginners.

You should never teach your players with long speeches and lectures because this will only bore them to death. You can have some lectures but you should also demonstrate what you are teaching after explaining it to them. This way, they can easily pick the idea you are talking about. Another benefit you can get using live demonstration in your softball coaching is that you players can avoid doing mistakes which are commonly done by most softball players since they can see the proper way of executing a certain softball drill.

Another thing you need to bear in your mind is that make your softball drills and exercises fun and motivating.

By doing this, team work and cooperation will be developed into each of your player. You know how important team work in playing the game is. No matter how good is your softball hitter or pitcher, it will be come useless if the rest of the team will not do their part in order to win.
