The Back Foot Defence

In this Session we look at a key defensive skill; the Back Foot Defence. Although the back foot defence might not be the most crowd pleasing of shots it is nonetheless an invaluable shot which should help your players to avoid hearing the dreaded ?Howzat?.

To help you to coach this important skill Sportplan has designed the back foot defence session, ideal for when you are training in large groups or with groups of young players. This session focuses on footwork, soft hands and the active reinforcement of all the skills learnt in this session through conditioned games. Your players will work on their defensive shots as they learn and reinforce this safety first stroke.

Where this session truly comes into its own though is with its involvement of the non-batting players, whether bowling or fielding, everyone is involved and playing an active role in this training session. In addition everyone will get a chance to work on their batting thanks to the fast rotation of the drills. Another positive aspect to this sessions is that players will have the opportunity to take the initiative, because they are working in small groups, and provide technical feedback to one another.
