2 Lines, 1 Coach is a simple name for a simple drill. Options include running this drill as an Early Activity, or during station instruction. Coach has discretion to insert whatever instruction is appropriate for both the athletes… and the operator 🙂 If you don’t know ground ball instruction, just swing away and get the athletes ground balls – hello truck twists! Note: If offered during Early Activity, do so without throws as this is before the athletes have warmed up.
EXECUTION – Divide the athletes into two lines, allowing for maximum repetitions while keeping as many kids as possible active. Consider positioning the ground ball lines to involve actual 2B and SS infield positions.
- Mass Reps – Roll them, hit them, alternate ground ball reps to each line and let them rip!
- Q: Throw vs. Ball Pile? – A: When are you running the drill? Pre-practice = no throw.
- Game Like / Compete – Add baserunners WITH HELMETS and use a coach (adult) as receiver.
