This drill is great conditioning for a catcher while practicing basic catching skills

The coach will stand about 5-10 feet in front of home plate and the catcher will wear full gear and take his/her stance behind the plate.

The coach will throw the first 5 balls in the dirt and the catcher will have to block them

The coach will throw the next 5 balls far out to the sides and the catcher will have to move and block the balls only with his/her body

The coach will throw the next 5 balls high and the catcher will have to pop up to catch them.

The coach will throw the next 5 balls at random

The coach will finish with throwing pop-ups right after one of the balls is caught.

This drill will be great to do with 2-3 catchers take their turn at the drill one of the catchers can help shag balls and the other can take a small break before going through the drill again.
