With time and space usually limited, most coaches struggle to organize an efficient practice. In this instructional presentation, Coach Margie Knight shares a routine for the beginning of practice that takes only 20 minutes, but prepares players for hundreds of game situations.
Coach Knight explains her skill perfections and philosophy on how to best utilize these drills in practice and better prepare the team for game time. These exercises are self-directed, which enables players to practice and develop leadership abilities. Her teams do skill perfection drills for the first 20 minutes of every team practice. Each position player, as well as pitchers, get numerous touches of the ball, both in a partner setting with the ball tossed and in a multi-positional setting with coaches hitting fungos.
Coach Knight's team demonstrates all of the skill perfection while she explains the key coaching points of each drill. Skill perfections, which are shown for every position on the field cover partner drills for routine grounders, backhands, short and long hops with tags, feeds and flips, fence balls, outfield diving, sun balls, catching framing and blocking. In addition, she provides drills that require multiple positions to work together such as double play feeds and turns, rundowns, bunt defense work and passed ball plays. You'll learn how to prepare your team for every play imaginable.
Coach Knight shows you how to accomplish more in less time!
