Junior Fielding - Moving to meet the ball!

This Sportplan session is designed to get your young players attacking the ball in the field - running to pick it up and throw it back at the stumps as quickly as possible!

It stands to reason, the quicker your players throw the ball to their wicket keeper, the fewer runs the opposition will be able to make, that's why in this session we get your players to save as much time as possible by getting them to meet the rolling ball, using the long barrier and flicking it back as quickly and accurately as they can.

To get your players in the habit of running to meet the ball, and not simply waiting for it to roll into their hands, this session challenges your players running out to the ball - working on their pick up and flick whilst also improving their fielding consistency, ensuring they get their body behind the ball!

Remember -Time is valuable when fielding - even the smallest changes to the way your team play can have a major influence on the outcome of the whole game!
