Softball sliding tips?

Okay, I play softball & my weakest point is sliding. I know HOW to slide but I'm trying to improve my sliding. I usually slide too late and don't gain enough speed which is a problem. I'm usually kinda nervous when sliding, I honestly don't know why since I have alot of padding on... But anyway what are some tips to improve sliding?

Sliding is tough to be confident at. I think your problem is, like you said, gaining speed into the slide. I find it is easier if you are going faster because it is more natural and you don't think about it as much. Try to go into the base like a plane landing, like a glide. The biggest thing is to not think too much, because then you find yourself nervous and sliding late. I also find that it is easier to slide if you lean back a lot, otherwise you slow down faster. Don't worry, you will get used to it!
