Plan A Practice Without A Field

By Sumit Bhatnagar and Parul Aggarwal

Being a coach, you must have experienced a number of times that whenever you call for a practice and meet the team at the field, there is always one team practicing and two other teams waiting to practice?

You start to feel sort of helpless in such a situation. Moreover, you are left with no choice but one and that is to take your team only to find the same situation there!

This article presents different ways in which you can plan a practice session for your team even without a field.

There is a big difference between a practice session with a field and the one without a field. The only difference is having a few soft covered balls available and some planned drills for a hard service.

When there is no field available, you can make your team practice in a parking lot!

However, there are many things that you can do and that you cannot do in such kind of a practice. These are as follows:

• No sliding is possible.

• In a parking lot, it is difficult to regularly practice batting with even soft covered balls.

• However, without a field, you can set up some great bunting competition games! It is simple. You can just divide the team in half, set up two cones, and ask each team to go through the batting order and see how many can bunt between the cones.

In short, all you need to do is become creative. For instance, you can make your team practice a lot of different base running drills and throwing drills.

If you fail to get even a parking lot, backyard can be your next option. To conclude, do not call off practice just because you did not get the field. Make sure you come prepared and ready with some extra props.
