A Division Drills and Practice Plans

Updated Sunday March 10, 2019 by Barrington Little League.

The goal of the Instructional division is to provide players with a fun initiation into the very basic concepts of baseball.  Over the course of the season, we hope that players will continue to improve on the skills they began developing in T-Ball. In addition, they should start to develop some new skills, including:

  • how to catch a fly ball,
  • how to hit a thrown ball,
  • how to slide,
  • how to block catch and block balls as a catcher,
  • and how to pitch (even though they won't until single A)

Along the way, players should also be adding to their knowledge of game play, including:

  • returning to their base on caught fly balls,
  • backing up other players,
  • and learning to get the "easiest" out.

To assist new coaches, we provide a practice template that we hope will help with running fun, efficient practices.  

Additional content, including an in depth 12 week practice plan with recommended drills, is available on the Little League International Website (https://www.littleleague.org/play-little-league/coach-pitch/)
PLEASE let us know of any techniques or materials that you think should be added to this page by contacting webmaster@barringtonlittleleague.org
