Rounders Drill Demonstration

Description

Divide your players into two equal teams, one team fields while the other team bats.

The coach bowls the ball (underarm) to the batter who must catch the ball before then underarm throwing the ball into the field, instead of hitting the ball.

If a batter drops the ball they can only run to first base.

In order to get players out the batters can be stumped or caught out.

Coaching points

Normal scoring applies.

Players must throw the ball with 2 seconds of catching the ball.

Everyone gets two goes at batting before swapping teams over.

Count the outs as a negative rounder rather than making players sit out.

At the end of the game add up the scores to see which team is the winner.

Progression: Play this game with overarm batting instead of underarm.
