Skills for Developing Your Child’s Natural Athletic Ability

Athleticism and being a well-rounded athlete are two things that make a baseball player stronger and pay dividends on the field. But how do you develop natural athletic ability? Here are some simple tips to incorporate into everyday life that will increase your child’s athletic ability and translate to results on the baseball field:

Coordination

Coordination goes beyond the ability to catch a ball. Coordination is pivotal in baseball – everything from running, to jumping, to swinging a bat, to of course, catching a baseball. Many adults take coordination for granted but you can help your child develop these skills by just getting them outside to play or introducing them to other sports.

Strength Training

When people think strength training, they think of lifting weights. Sure, lifting weights is a way to strength train, but not one that is necessarily best for the younger set. Strengthening muscles improves your abilities in all aspects of baseball because it helps you run faster, swing harder, and throw harder. Children as young as 7 can benefit from strength training through resistance bands, push-ups, and even very light weights.

Agility

When your muscles are limber, they move faster and more efficiently. Make stretching a part of your child’s daily routine – adding it when they wake up in the morning and before they go to bed, particularly with muscles they use often in baseball. Reinforce the importance of regular stretching before a game to prevent injury.

Endurance

Physical endurance is less important in baseball, but it is a factor. Mental endurance, on the other hand, is extremely important in baseball. Mental endurance can be built by playing games like Chess or Monopoly that require a child to focus for extended periods of time. Physical endurance is important, particularly for running bases and for playing pitcher or catcher. Incorporating sports like soccer or basketball – even if just played infrequently with friends – helps to build endurance in these areas.
