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!

It's difficult to design a team practice where each defensive position is involved and efficiently working on position-specific situations and drills. Learn from Coach Margie Knight the defensive shells that keep an entire team involved while practicing multiple defensive situations. In this presentation, Coach Knight explains the set-up for 10 different defensive shells that allow each player to practice numerous position-specific situations.

Coach Knight shares her insight on how to best utilize practice drills and get the most out of her defensive shells. These shells are ideal for teams with fewer coaches, as players can participate and manage the drills on their own. Coach Knight shows how to get players involved in running each shell to keep practice moving.

These shells cover many defensive situations from the routine ground or fly ball to rundowns to passed balls and involve numerous players working together to practice almost any defensive situation. For example, one shell involves the battery and right side of the infield working together on pickoffs at first base while the left side of the infield and the outfielders simultaneously practice ground balls to the outfield and throwing the ball in to the appropriate base. Every player on the field is involved!

It is often said that pitching and defense win championships. If that's true, Coach Knight's defensive shells will help build an airtight defense that will lead to championships. Plan your practice with these shell drills in mind and become a winner!
