Pitching is integral to the game of baseball — and one of the hardest things to learn. When it comes to teaching kids to pitch, help them develop good mechanics right from the start. 

Our nine best pitching drills for kids break down the pitching motion into parts — from the bend of the throwing arm and shoulder rotation to pitch velocity and the  balance point for a steady delivery. Over time, kids will rely on muscle memory. 

But before they get there, be patient. Keep practice fun and interesting. When your young pitchers feel comfortable on the mound – both mentally and physically – count that as a win.    

Kneel of Fortune
Wheel that upper body to the outside of the knee!

Balance Beam
Easy does it! Pitchers tap cones to help steady their delivery.

The Flamingo

No ball needed to perfect pitching mechanics. 

Rock ‘n Roll
Balance and rhythm – not just for dancing.
