Join three-time state championship Coach Mike Woods as he prepares his high school baseball team for the upcoming season. This video will enhance any coach's practice with a variety of drills delivered in an up-tempo, time-saving practice. Each practice was filmed live, as it happened. Woods and his staff provide helpful commentary on their approach to practice and coach their players through the drills.
Coach Woods takes you through his six phase practice session. Each phase includes drills for footwork, ball handling, ball transfer, 1st and 3rd defense and batting practice. You'll see a unique twist on dynamic stretching as well as a detailed throwing program that gets every player building his arm in a way that is relevant to his position.
Woods reveals his catcher drills that use a pitching machine, explains why he incorporates the pre-game infield/outfield routine into every practice, then throws live batting practice; giving you total access to all of the tips, adjustments and attention to fundamentals he conveys to his players.
In the second practice, Coach Woods runs his team through the "Vault" base running drill which will allow your team to get a better jump on the ball and steal more bases. Woods spends a good amount of time giving highly detailed coaching to catchers, and has his assistants doing cage work and tee drills with highly detailed, excellent coaching.
Also included is a live batting practice with every round scripted to resemble a live game situation; outfield work with a focus on one-hops, ground balls, fly balls, and playing balls off the wall; double plays with a focus on the first out; and situation work.
This video is a valuable for any coach at any level who wants to develop or improve their high energy practices. Coach Woods shows how every coach can maximize their practice time with their players and get the most out of their players everyday!
