Throwing and Catching: Mechanics Drills
Throwing & Catching Mechanics Drill:
-         Pair-up players and have them form two lines facing each other about 10 to 20 yards apart depending on age and ability
-         With their feet spread at shoulder-width have the players throw the ball without taking a step
-         This will teach players to use an over-the-top arm action while working on the follow-through
-         When catching the ball, teach players to hop toward the on-coming ball with their glove-side shoulder forward
-         Have players ‘receive’ the ball with their glove hand out in front of their body
After catching the ball, players hop back to the shoulder-width stance and return the ball to their partner
