Quick Tip #26

Just Hit Drill

In the Just Hit Drill, coaches can be creative trying to come up with all different props and objects for the players to hit. Kids love this drill. The coach will say, “Hit,” and the player has to hit the object, whether it is rolling on the ground or in the air. It is preferable for the players to swing a plastic bat to make contact with the object. Coaches and parents should try to be as creative as possible. 

Whether it is hitting balloons in the air or a kick ball on the ground, this basic concept of hitting anything is an excellent at‒home drill. If done with your team, you are limited with the number of players going at the same time.

Here we see the coach blowing bubbles for the player to swing at and hit. The bubbles will float all over the place, making it both a challenge and fun for the hitter to pop as many as they can. This is excellent for the youngest of players. Even kids as young as three or four can do this drill with their parents. Forget about any technique with the very young. Just hit the bubbles!
