I’m doing some practice planning for six 45-minute Sunday pitching workouts with my varsity pitchers. We’re starting this Sunday at 8:45-9:30 in an indoor tennis facility because as you know here in Massachusetts there’s about 5 feet of snow
However, 45 min is NOT a lot of time, which is irritating. My current plan is to:
- Dynamic warmup (10 min)
- Throw flat ground up to 120 feet (10 min)
- Throw 32-pitch bullpen (10-15 min)
- Tubing/med-ball exercises (10-15 min)
Like I said, it’s not a lot of time, and it’s only once a week, but it’s the best we can do. Any suggestions how I can maximize this time? And more importantly, I’m looking for some thoughtful discussion on practice planning for pitchers that other coaches can share best practices and ideas.
