Fundamental Focus:

Hit the Bucket will help your players throw the ball with more accuracy.

What You’ll Need:

  • Bucket
  • Tee Balls

Drill Sequence:

  • All players make a large circle around a bucket. Each player takes a turn and tosses a tee ball that they have at the bucket, trying to get the ball inside the bucket.
  • If a player hits the bucket with their ball, it counts as an out for the team. If a player gets their ball inside the bucket, it counts as three outs for the team and the round is over. The team is trying to get three outs.
  • The drill may progress to see how many balls the team can toss inside the bucket during a specified time period.
