The Long Toss Game Drill can be a fun and competitive drill to do with the team. This drill gets everyone involved and practicing throwing from various distances.
Players should be partnered up and standing facing each other.
- The players will begin throwing the ball to each other.
- After each throw, the players should take 2 steps back and throw again. Emphasize that players throw with a lot of arc on their throws the further apart they get.
- Once players reach a certain distance away, they can begin taking steps back towards each other. As players begin closing distance, they should be putting less arc on their throws and focusing more on throwing directly at their partner.
- Partners who drop the ball or make a bad throw are out of the game. The two that are left standing are the winners.
