XBALL Nightly Agenda 2018
ALL NIGHTS BEGIN AT 5:30PM
Each team will start at the same station each night and will rotate through all stations.
Team 1 RED: Station 1 Team 2 BLUE: Station 2 Team 3 YELLOW: Station 3
Team 4 GREEN: Station 4 Team 5 ORANGE: Station 5 Team 6 PURPLE: Station 6
M - RUN
IN and OUT DRILL
Each station will be about 8 minutes only. After 8 minutes it is time to move to the next station in the rotation. I.e. if at station 6 move to station 7. An Airhorn will blow, finish current rotation and move on even if all kids havenâ€™t completed it. At the next station start with those kids that didnâ€™t get to do it
After the children have rotated through all stations they will play a game against another team. Please play against different teams each night.
Equipment: blastbat, blastball, tee, 1 base 1 cone for other â€˜baselineâ€™.
Only 1st base is used for the game. (about 45 feet away from home) Have a parent stand 2 feet behind base to give high fives as the children run through the base (this teaches them not to stop before the base)
Each team takes a turn at bat. All children bat off the tee.
Defensive team rotate fielding positions so all children should have a chance to field the ball. Give the children their areas to â€˜fieldâ€™ so they donâ€™t dog pile each other but learn to work together as a team.
When defence gets ball, either by catching in the air or ground balls. The defence team all yell BLAST. The child that stopped the ball will then throw the ball back to the coach in the field who will then throw it to the coach at bat (setting up the tee).
When offence passes base the offensive team yells BALL! The batter then returns to their team to cheer their players on.
If you want, you can keep score by who yells first gets a point but you donâ€™t have to.
Once all players on the team bat switch sides and continue the inning. This game teaches hitting, running, catching & fielding.
