Make more impact plays in the outfield this season!
Kyla Holas presents drills and coaching exercises that will create impact outfielders capable of making game changing plays. Coach Holas divides the tape into three areas.
Footwork & Throwing
Beginning with throwing basics, Holas demonstrates a basic box drill to work on arm slot and footwork; critical elements in creating a strong, accurate throw every time. She then adds a ground ball progression that incorporates fielding into the fundamentals of the throw. From there she demonstrates the quarterback drill that works on the drop step with different ball paths (straight back, diagonal, across and in front).
Ground Ball Progressions
See various progressions to build forehand and backhand skills that will create good angles to the ball allowing your athletes to make an efficient and accurate throw. You'll also see practice ideas to train communication skills for tweeners, as well as exercises for throwing out a runner in "do or die situations," and the proper way to complete fence pick-ups to quickly get the ball to the base.
Holas shows a fly ball progression to train proper fundamentals for routine flies, balls hit overhead, fly balls near the fence, and balls hit into the sun. In addition, you will learn the proper form for diving for fly balls. Discover strategies for safely training the art of diving and eliminate the fear of landing.
