BVSA Teaches: Inside the Net Drill
On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about the inside the net drill. Hey guys, another little drill that sometimes helps with bat path. As we talked about, we can’t have the kids getting in and out here too fast and their bat out there. We want to keep it close to the body, rotating the lower half first, creating bat lag. So, I do not recommend it with an L screen but we’re not in a cage. So, I’m going to do it with an L screen. Here we have nets all over the facility. What you want to do is kind of just put the bat up against their belly button and the end of it at the net. Then have them take swings without hitting the net.
As you hear, I just nicked that net, so I know I have to make a little bit of adjustment. The adjustment is it step out and give yourself more room. You have to make sure that they’re doing their regular load and transfer. They’re not opening too much to cheat when they do their load and transfer. Then they swing while they keep their hands inside the ball and don’t get the net. And again, all these drills, you repeat over and over, you start together, show them a little video for some reinforcement. It might help, hope it helps you.
