Cricket: Walking in Catching

"Sportplan is providing me with all of the new dimensions of coaching...
Kanishka

DESCRIPTION

This drill is best perfromed in two groups of 6-8 players.

Set up the two cones 7 metres apart.

The first player walks in to the 'goal' and sets up to take the catch. The coach hits the catch to the player, who has to move to either their right or left.

Once caught the ball is returned to the coach and the player that has taken the catch returns to the back of the line.

COACHING POINTS

It's important that this drill is kept moving, so players must anticipate when it is their go and be walking in ready.

Balance: The set position

Be in a strong, balanced postion when the ball is delivered (imagine a tennis players postion waiting to recieve a serve).

Timing of this set postion is key:

Too early and you will not be able to react as well, too late and the ball could be past you.

The ideal position:

The ideal postion is feet shoulder's width apart, on your toes (balls of the feet), and ready to attack. Stay in a strong yet relaxed postion.
