No matter what kind of new training techniques are introduced to the sport of youth baseball, there is still nothing like youth hitting drills to really hammer home proper form as well as increasing the confidence of the individual players. Here are a few of the benefits of keeping hitting drills in your coaching regimen.

Identifying Issues

If there are issues with your swing, the only way to really correct the problem is to isolate the part of your swing that is giving you a problem and work on that particular part of it. This is most easily done by engaging in hitting exercises. This ensures that you are not wasting your time trying to fix something that is not broken.

Work With A Purpose

Performing drill after drill repeatedly may seem redundant, but it is actually working with a very defined purpose. By doing repetitive youth hitting drills, you are basically training your body to remember how to swing and move in situations that previously were problematic. The beauty of this is that you will no longer have to even think about what to do, your body will just automatically respond and perform as it should.

Safe From Injury

When kids learn the proper form at a young age, they are far less likely to become injured from poor form. Continually moving your body in a way that is not optimal can lead to repetitive stress injury and leave nagging pain on young bodies for years to come.
