Defensive Drills: Get Everyone Involved

One of the best ways to improve your team is to improve your practices. Designing practices and drills that allow you to quickly get every player the necessary reps will greatly increase the effectiveness of your practices.

In the video clip below Mark Brew Lee University Head Coach; (former NAIA National Coach of the Year) demonstrates a defensive segment in which he is able to run multiple drills simultaneously.

The point of this clip is not intended to show you exactly how to run a defensive practice, but maybe to give you some ideas and use your own creativity to design more effective practices.

These drills are taken from Coach Brew’s instructional DVD. For more information about that DVD click the link Game Situation Drills for Baseball Practice.
