Little League® International recommends all leagues implement at least a two-week training period prior to beginning any formal game play. This will allow all players to ramp up their baseball activity without rushing to get into game action. As leagues plan this two-week period, some best practices include:
Week one should consist of at least two practices over the course of the week.
Look at conducting open practices as frequently as possible. These practices can be for all participants and run by the league, focusing on different skills, such as throwing/fielding, hitting/baserunning, fly balls, etc. Open practices must be set up by division and may not include players from multiple divisions of play.
During week two, it’s encouraged to weave in scrimmages or exhibition games with some of these best practices:
Little League® has always placed safety as a top priority, and we continually strive to provide children with safe and healthy baseball/softball opportunities. For more than a decade, the Little League program has been at the forefront of promoting arm safety for youth pitchers. Our pitching regulations must be followed throughout all play, and it’s important to give your baseball and softball pitchers the opportunity to properly warm-up and get their arms used to throwing again.
Additionally, we recommend that coaches implement calisthenics, stretches (active and static), and jogging for pitchers, as well as all players, to loosen muscles, build endurance, and work back into the season in a safe and effective manner.
