This is my first season as head coach of tourney team with the majority of our players in their first year of 12u. (While new to 12u, most of the girls played 2 years of 10u ball previously.) It has been a rough start to our season, as we are just 1-8 through our first three tourneys. We have played very well at times, but it just seems a mental error here, a big inning there, ends up dooming us. With an off weekend coming up, we want to get back to the basics this week. Any suggestions on good fundamental drills, especially on the defensive side? A lack of mental focus (throwing the ball to the wrong base, dropped pop ups, etc.) have doomed us.
