Be careful with using resistance training. Resistance training became popular back in the 1990s, and has stuck around today. One method that I see many people doing is tying a parachute type device to the end of a bat and swinging it so the parachute inflates, causing resistance. However, this is a quick way to pull a muscle and teach you very poor mechanics of bringing the bat through the zone effectively.
You can find many youth baseball drills on the Internet covering hitting, fielding and throwing.Some drills are free and some require subscription or for you to order a DVD.Free baseball drills allow you greater flexibility in trying a variety and see what works best for you as the coach and your youth baseball team. Always remember that drills should be age appropriate. The right fielding drill for a 14 year-old boy will not suit and 8-year old and vice versa. There are many baseball coaching resources and communities like Weplay available to help with any questions you might have. Dont underestimate the passion of the community around you. We are all here to help the kids.
Here’s my secret to learning to love baseball: The greatest help from scoring baseball is the fact it forces the scorekeeper to actually watch every pitch. In fact, you’ll learn to keep an eye on what happens between the pitches. Defensive players are shifted one way or another for different batters. The catcher shifts position at the last second to avoid tipping off the batter. Middle infielders signal each other about who will take the throw should a runner try to steal second. The pitcher checks with them to see who is covering the base should he field a grounder with a runner on first.
