Cricket | Ground fielding and throwing Drills

HOW TO USE THESE DRILLS...

In cricket the way a player carries out ground fielding and throwing the ball back to his fellow players is hugley important.

Through these drills your players will become adept at stopping the ball using the standard ?long barrier? technique (see video below) which involves the fielder forming a barrier with the bottom half of their leg. Good technique leaves the fielder in a kneeling position.

Throwing involves getting the ball as quickly to a fellow player without it bouncing. The goal is to run a batsman out (hitting the stumps before they reach the crease). A good technique is to have a solid standing stance, feet slightly apart, shoulders facing the direction you want the ball to travel. When coaching young people advise them to point to where they want the ball to go after release.

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
