Working your Wicket Keeper - The Wicket keeping basics
The wicket keeper is the busiest player on your fielding team and is the heartbeat of the side. The standards they set tend to ripple through a team very quickly. For this reason it's essential that the keeper sets a high standard for everyone else, with positive body language and lots of energy!
What's in the session?
To help your keepers improve their overall technique and lay the foundations for future development this session starts by looking at your players' stance - ensuring they're relaxed, with knees bent and their weight slightly forward on the balls of their feet. After this we put the technique into practice, looking at keeping the K, catching a bowl missed by the batter and finishing with a fun dive catching exercise!
