Bunting SHOULD be an important part of your offense. If it is, softball bunting drills will need to be in your “tool-kit” to help your team improve in this area.
If you ever watch the Women’s College World Series (WCWS), the MLB World Series, or the Men’s College Baseball World Series for any length of time you will quickly notice instances where a bunt makes a huge impact on the game. Or a failed bunt makes a negative impact.
Today I am going to show you a drill that we use almost every day to help our players work on directional bunting. Click below to watch the video and then read below for further learning!
These examples of making drills competitive can not only be applied to softball bunting drills, but also to drills for other areas of the game with some creativity and planning.
While it is important to make things competitive to increase intensity and to put pressure on your players, you also need to have a balance where they are able to work on technique without rushing themselves.
