The first practice in this session has been designed to get your players to run off some excess energy while also teaching them to stop the ball rolling the ball beyond them - with players working in threes to Run, Roll, Gather and Return the ball. After this energetic start we work on accurate throwing and then putting fielding in a fun active situation, before finishing the session with a fielding game to use all the skills that have been covered.
Although this session has been tried and tested with young players (a large group of 7-8 year olds) there's no reason why you can't use it with older players - modifying the drills to increase the difficulty!)
Try this session with your young ones today and work on their fielding speed and skills!
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!
As fielding becomes a more important part of the game, having a strong arm is vital in a game that?s getting faster and more powerful each season. Improve your players all-round game to offer something not just with the bat or ball.

The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
Give it a try - it's better in the app
