One of the major challenges facing youth coaches is keeping your youngsters engaged throughout a session - you might have lots of knowledge to impart but if your players are not paying attention it's going to fall on deaf ears!
To ensure your youngsters stay switched on throughout this core skills session we open with a fast, skills development warm up. Once your players have been initiated into the session we then move onto a series of games which will challenge your players' competitive side whilst also working on their catching and throwing consistency.
As a final treat (as long as everyone's worked hard) we finish with a fun final game of Kwik Cricket (also known as Kanga cricket in Australia). So jump to it and work on your players' core skills today!
Give your batters some much needed middle time batting on grass; a chance to adjust to the pace and bounce of the wicket after a winter of playing indoors!

Give it a try - it's better in the app
