This drill is all about exercising the proper fundamentals of throwing and catching with a glove.

Set Up

  • Players stand approximately 15-20 feet apart


  1. Players throw the ball back and forth to each other.
  2. Players catch the ball in their glove and use proper throwing fundamentals.

Coaching Tips

  • Players should be using all their fundamentals — stepping toward the target, presenting a target window and catching with two hands.
  • Remind players their focus should be on accuracy and technique not power.
  • Shorten or lengthen the distance between the players.
  • Put players of similar arm strength together.
