Cricket: Football Header- Leading with the head

Thanks to Sportplan and their coaching tips, I can now coach with...
Horatius, Cricket Coach

DESCRIPTION

*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON*

  • In pairs, one player with a football feeding and one with a bat in their stance. 
  • Feeder to throw the ball out slightly in front of the batter and high enough for them to header it. 
  • Batter to return the ball with a header, with the head leading the player should be automatically stepping into the header. 

COACHING POINTS

*COACHING EXAMPLE 0.49*

  • Encourages batters to move towards the ball leading with their head. Allows batters to work the movement pattern out by themselves. 
  • Good drill for players who are leading with their legs and feet first.

PROGRESSION

*VARIATION 0.42*

  • Batters can work on this drill individually. 
  • Bounce the football against a wall and, as before, leading with their head, step towards the ball and header it.
