Whether you’re a coach or a player, when it comes to developing your practicing drills you got to be aware of one thing – drills can become incredibly boring very quickly.
Baseball Drills for Youth
If you’re a coach, it’s your job to understand the needs of your players and plan accordingly – esspecially when it comes to younger players.
For ages under 13 years old, I’d recommend having a mixture of both technical coaching and fun activities to re-enforce any coaching points.
For really young players, you’re going to need to bring as much energy and fun as possible if you want to engage your players longer than a couple of seconds!
Baseball Drills for Individuals:
For individual players, you’re likely going to have a little more focus. But don’t limit yourself to just one drill. Set a number of repetitions and ‘sets’ and then move onto another drill variation.
This gives your brain a little space to process the technique or skill you’re trying to refine without frustrating yourself.
Another concideration to take into account is your use of equipment.
With that said however, sometimes the limitations of equipment (and space) and force us to not only get a little creative but force us to look achieve development in unconvential ways.
