From Kathy…
Throwing Accuracy:

I attach small hula hoops to a fence and have two cones, 15 and 25 feet away from them.  1) There are 5 balls placed at each cone.  The girls charge the ball and [tag]throw[/tag] at the hoop target.
2) Each girl is tossed 5 balls at each cone from forward position and a right angle position.

They must retrieve the ball then make the throw to the target.

This is great group work when working with stations.

Batting:

I attach a tire to the fence (with bungee cords).  I spray paint a white line at top, middle and bottom of the zone.  Each girl practices [tag]swinging[/tag] and striking the marks as hard as she can.  This builds lower arm strength and helps with follow through after [tag]hitting[/tag] a ball.  (Any tire place will give you a used tire free.)
