|FIELDING: BREAK DOWN DRILL |
|This drill is a "break down drill" Have your players get in partner. |
On there knees they role eachother the ball. While fielding with bare hands (inforce softhands, paddles can be good for this) they lift there feet of the ground behind them. This forces them to see the ball all the way in. After they have done about twenty of that tell them to put their gloves on. Do about twenty that way. Then have them work forehand and back hands the same way. When they are done with that tell them to stand up and do the same things while standing. Start with their gloves off and go back through the rotation. When they do backhands and forhands make them start with their feet already in the position they would be in when fielding the ball and make them concentrate on softhands.
We do this drill everyday on my college team. While it can be really annoying it really does help you focus on the basics and make sure that they are right.
