Advanced Team Defense Drills for Softball DVD
In this working warm up, Gasso demonstrates a five drill warm up circuit. Before taking the field, she demonstrates drills that include a weighted glove reaction drill, slide board leg work, and several wall ball drills.
On the field, Gasso demonstrates two team warm up drills: Around the World and Touch & Go. Around the World doubles as a warm up and conditioning drill for both infielders and outfielders. The Touch & Go drill works on creating athleticism and maximizing the players' range.
These drills will energize your team and set the tone for practice.
Gasso runs her players through eight Infield Drills. These multifaceted drills work players all around the infield focusing on range, glove work, footwork, short hops, sliding with the throw, throwing on the run and more.
The Outfield Drills include nine drills that work on becoming efficient in the outfield. These drills fine-tune all ares of outfield defense, including footwork, fielding ground balls with the forehand and backhand, throwing to bases, hitting relays and recovering from bad throws, playing the ball off the wall, taking good angles to the ball and going hard to get the out in foul territory.
