ROUNDING

Setting The Proper Angle

The base runner stays in the base line until she's half way to first.  Once she's half way, she slowing starts to angle herself outside the base line. As the base runner approaches the base, she should have an angle that allows her to touch the base and be in or close to a direct line to second base.

Approaching Inside Of Base

The base runner continues to approach the inside of the base at full speed. As the base runner reaches the base, she will touch the inside of the base preferably with her left foot but either foot is fine as long as she doesn't break her stride or slow down. She's in an athlectic position with her weight on the inside to retain proper balance. She will continue to have an angle that allows her to touch the base and be in or close to a direct line to second base.

Making The Turn

The base runner touches the front inside corner of the base with her left foot at full speed without breaking stride.  She drives off the base directly towards second base in an athlectic position. 

Proper Angle

The base runner continues to approach the base at full speed. As the base runner nears the base, she should continue to have an angle that allows her to touch the base and be in or close to a direct line to second base.

Touching The Inside Of Base
