Works on throwing distance and power

Drill Setup

  • Place a series of cones about 10 yards apart, continuing for most of the length of the outfield, or however you think is the farthest the players on your team can throw.
  • Players will form a line at one end of the cones.

How it Works

  1. Players will take turns, one at a time, throwing the ball as far as they can.
  2. Each player gets 3-5 throws
  3. Throws only count if they land inside the target area – there’s no use in power without accuracy.

Coaching Tips

  • Make sure your players are adequately warmed up before trying this drill. Do some light throwing and full body warmups beforehand.
  • To add a little extra competition, you can crown the winner the “˜distance throw’ champ.
