How do I keep the practice fun and interesting, while keeping the kids focused?

The best way to keep kids interested and having fun, is to keep the kids moving and active.  When running drills, keep the lines small, so the kids aren’t standing around.   Getting parents and assistant coaches involved is a great way to run baseball drills at multiple stations simultaneously .  Keep the discussions with the kids to a minimum.  Being prepared and organized with a game plan that includes stretches, drills, and game situation practice is key when coaching baseball.  This will allow you to move from drill to drill, with minimal time in between.  The kids will enjoy a fast moving practice that is organized and full of fun drills and instruction.
