Drills and Practice Plans

Updated Tuesday January 12, 2016 by Geneva Little League.

The goal of the Pony League 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 start to develop a few fundamental skills, including:

  • how to grip and throw a ball,
  • how to position their hands to catch balls in the air and ground
  • and how to grip and swing a bat.

Along the way, players should also pick up some of the basics of game play, including:

  • the names and locations of the positions on the field
  • the concepts of force and tag outs
  • the importance of teamwork (not everyone should chase after every ball!)
  • how to run the bases

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