Keeping a team practice organized and efficient is a challenge all coaches face. It's difficult to cover all the facets necessary for success within the time constraints of practice. In this presentation, the Florida State coaching staff runs through a typical practice with their team that hits on all major factors of the game and shows the viewer how to prepare a team for any situation.


Smart and aggressive baserunnning can help teams win close games, which is why the FSU coaches have their players work on baserunning often. You'll see players run through a seven step baserunning progression which covers almost every typical baserunning scenario.


The FSU coaches have an innovative drill called Sheet Knock to work on defense while keeping all of your players involved. This drill encompasses fifteen different defensive scenarios, including outfielders, infielders, pitchers and catchers throwing to each base. Sheet Knock offers a great way to cover many situations and plays in a quick and efficient manner.

Batting Practice

You'll receive a blueprint for running an efficient batting practice by splitting your team into groups and having those groups go through several different hitting stations. One group hits on the field while other groups run bases, shag batted balls, and hit in the cage. This batting practice system provided by the FSU coaches will keep your players moving around and engaged in productive activities while minimizing time spent standing around waiting to hit.

Pitching Bullpen

Coach Alameda takes her pitchers to the bullpen where they participate in a quick workout. She explains ways she helps her catchers develop strong working relationships with each pitcher during bullpen work. The group works on throwing pitches in different mock situations before practicing pitch-outs and pick-offs. At the end of the workout, pitchers practice executing a pitch in a pressure scenario, throwing a 3-2 count, 2 outs pitch with the bases loaded.

The FSU coaching staff will show you how to maximize productivity with minimal practice time. You'll run through a team practice and learn to prepare your team in all aspects of the game.
