Do you have to tag the runner on a force out in softball?

To tag a player out in softball, you can either tag them directly with the ball, or with the ball in your glove. It will not be called an out if you tag them with the glove with the ball in the other hand. When tagging a player, it is easier to straddle the bag, so you can easily get the tag down and make the out. You might want to look up videos on youtube for a visual example

'Change up' is another name for a 'slow ball'. Where a fast ball may be thrown around 90 or so MPH, a change up would be thrown in the 75-80 MPH range. It is thrown with the same motion as a fast ball and is used to fool the batter into swinging early at the pitch.

Can you switch hit every pitch in slow pitch softball?

as far as I know you could. In our leagues, you are allowed to switch sides of the plate as long as you dont walk right in front of the catcher while the pitcher is ready to pitch. Essentially you have to call for time. I love switching it up, keeps the fielders on their toes.... The best is when you switch sides, but hit op field :D

What experience do you need for softball?

Softball is a derivative of baseball, so it helps if you've played that sport. Slow pitch softball is far easier for a beginner than fast pitch, both from hitting and defensive perspectives. If you're a novice to softball, the easiest positions to play are on the right side of the field: first base, second base and right field. If you're an inexperienced player, avoid playing the left side of the infield where balls tend to come on the fielder faster and more often. Also avoid pitching. In softball, the pitcher is only 45 ft from home plate, balls tend to get hit up the middle often and reaction times need to be lightning quick.

There are a number of ways to get from 3rd to home. You can steal, be force home by a bases loaded walk to the batter, the batter get a hit, the batter hit a fly ball to out field allowing you to tag up and the pitcher make an illegal pitch. I'm sure I've overlooked a couple of more.
