Purpose: These agility drills improve footwork, quickness, balance, and stamina. It is important to practice footwork drills when  coaching softball to improve base running.

Procedure: On the gym floor or in the parking lot, set up a rectangular grid with nine spaces. Hop on one or two feet to-and-from the spaces in the grid. Start of by making the letter “X”. Then form the letter “S.” Then form these letters in reverse order. Older kids can be taught a specific scenario and compete against the clock. For a simple drill, hop back and forth over a line. First, left and right. Second, front and back. Then hop on both feet while making a small square box. First go clockwise and the counter-clockwise. Then try it on one foot. Use time frames (30 seconds each). Work hard and try to improve the times each day.
