FIELDING AND THROW

Set up two cones in the station area about three yards apart. Also set up a base about five yards away from the two cones. And set up another base about five yards from the first base creating half a diamond. Instruct at least two athletes to stand on opposite ends of the station area. Instruct one athlete to stand in athletic position between two cones and wait for coach to roll or bounce a small ball towards the athlete. Instruct the athlete to drop the hips and come down to stop the ball from getting past the athlete. Once the athlete has gotten the ball, instruct the athlete to immediately sprint to one of the bases in front of the athlete. After stepping on or tagging the base, instruct the athlete to throw the ball to the other athlete standing on the other base to complete the “play.”
