Obviously, 9 and above age groups should include specific drills and practice time for pitchers and catchers. These sample plans are meant to provide a basic outline only. Substitute your favorite drills into these plans as you see fit.
In addition to incorporating the various drills noted in the examples above, coaches should spend adequate time teaching SITUATIONAL BASEBALL. This is defined as doing anything that raises a player's baseball IQ and teaches them the mental aspects of the game. A simple example of this is to call out a situation ("1 out, runner on 1st") and randomly hitting an infield ground ball, as opposed to simply going around the horn in order. Build your list of typical game situations and scenarios, practice them repeatedly, and watch your young players get better, faster.
