Fun Baseball Drills:
How to Make Practice a Blast

youth baseball coaching tips from Dave Holt

Fun Baseball drills are a great way to teach baseball to youth league players. Baseball practice plans are so valuable to be able to teach baseball skills and reinforce the fundamentals. 

Baseball practice is just as important as the ball games. Maybe more.

Often this practice time is the only chance players will be able to swing the bat multiple times and throw and field a large quanity of times.

Skilled baseball coaches are able to incorporate fun drills into baseball practice plan templates. Keep a note card file box with the various fun drills that work the best.

Read on to check out our favorite youth practice drills with competitive team building games.

'Stop the Tsunami in Youth Sports' is a wakeup call and a desire to shift the youth sports paradigm toward a play-for-fun atmosphere. The players still improve, but without the mental and physical hangover associated with today's youth sports paradigm." By VJ Stanley.

Skip- Came across your books & videos 2 years ago at the end of the season.

I implemented your techniques the next season and can't thank you enough. The kids love practice, we accomplish a lot, and most importantly they all develop throughout the season. I don't worry much if we win or lose just as long as we try and they get better.

My pitchers only throw fastballs and a change up and we do just fine. If the other team hits the ball, great it gives the defense an opportunity to make a play.

I never coach from the box, I just encourage them to hit. And they all know the have the green light on 3-0. The best thing I can do for them is make them better hitters and the only way is to hit! By the way my kids are Junior Little league ages 13-14. Zach, Stockton, CA...
