I received this [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] from Keith, one of my readers. It is a drill for [tag]teaching baseball skills[/tag], with the emphasis on [tag]throwing[/tag]. It includes some great tips you can begin using with your team right away.
I work mostly with kids under the age of 10. It is very hard to keep their interest in [tag]practice[/tag] but one of the best throwing [tag]drills[/tag] we do, is called the [tag]bucket drill[/tag].
Once they have warmed up and practiced throwing correctly, playing a game of [tag]catch[/tag] not miss we play the bucket game. This game helps work on accuracy.
Break the players into two teams and set up two buckets, one for each team to throw at.
The length of the this drill can vary depending on the level of players you have. You let the players play until 21. They get 1 point for hitting the bucket on the bounce and 2 for hitting it in air.
Real young kids you might only want to play to 10.
