Play Ball!

Okay, so are you as tired of winter as I am?

I thought so. How about a post to get us thinking about summer?

Recently, I found this website to be a helpful reference for youth baseball drills --

The site is regularly updated and features information from a variety of sources. If you’re coaching youth baseball, you can’t get enough new feedback on ideas for different practice drills.

Additionally, if you are looking for a “break” from basketball and you can find some open gym time, we’ve found a quick hour or two of fundamental baseball drills keeps the skills sharp. Even if it’s just once a week or every two weeks, a quick indoor baseball practice can really help break up the “cabin fever”.

Cap your practice off with a 15 to 20-minute game of wiffle ball – the kids don’t even realize they are keeping their skills sharp because they are having fun!
