Purpose: To simulate game conditions while fielding bunts down the first and third baselines.

Procedure: The softball catcher assumes her position behind the plate with full gear. A helper is at first base and a helper is behind the catcher with softballs (where the umpire would stands). The helper rolls a ball out for the catcher to field and throw to first or third.

Purpose: To develop hip turn and rotation when softball hitting.

Procedure: Tape a paddle to the barrel of the bat so that it extends beyond the barrel. The batter places the bat behind her back so that the paddle extends beyond her back hip and grips the bat with both hands. The hitter assumes her batting position and her partner stands in front of her about 10 to 12 feet away. The tosser pitches the balls underhand across the plate. The batter takes a full hip turn trying to hit the ball with the paddle.
