Players stand in a circle with 1 or 2 balls (there are 2 in the video).
They have to throw the ball to each other and every time one of them makes a mistake they have to drop down on one knee.
On the second mistake they have to drop down onto both knees and with the third mistake they are out.
Who will be the last player standing/ kneeling?
You could add rules like one hand catching or players may only use their left hand.
Players are not allowed to throw the ball back to the player they received it from.
Players are not allowed to throw the ball to the player that has already got a ball.
Players must throw the ball so the player has a good opportunity to catching the ball, not to low, hard or high.
Long barrier Team A must roll the ball past team B to score a point (goal) and vice versa.
Players work in groups of 5, in a grid with 5 cones set up in a zig-zag formation, roughly 7 metres apart.
Each player stands on a cone. All players, except for those queueing behind the first cone require balls.
On the coach's call player 1, on the first cone, aims to get to collect the ball that has been dropped from shoulder height by the player on the cone in front of them, before the ball bounces twice.
This is one pick-up.
Player 1 then gives the ball back to the player on the cone, and sets themself before the coach gives the next call.
Again the working player aims to get to the next ball before second bounce.
This process is repeated until all players have performed 4 pick-ups.
Four players working with 1 ball and 1 bat.
One of the 3 players throws the ball at the batter who has to tap the ball back to any of the 3 players so they can catch the ball and throw the ball back again.
Setup: 4 players stand in a diamond with 3 balls. A 5th player stands in the middle.
To start the drill 1 of the outside players throw their ball to the player in the middle who has to return the ball the player who did not have a ball before the ball was thrown.
The middle player then rotates to receive the next ball and the drill continues in this way.
Throwing & Catching
One player starts outside the square with the ball the next player this player rolls the ball for the next player to runs out and gathers to throw the ball for the next player After each go it is important that the players return to the square.
The player at the front of the 2 players runs to the middle to collect the ball on the cone and roll it to the player on the opposite side. This player collects the ball and runs to the middle to put the ball on the cone. The next player then runs to collect the ball and rolls the ball for next player waiting.
This Drill is where the 2nd player in the line rolls the ball into the field for the 1st player in the line to gather and throw at the fielder at 4th post. The 4th post player then throws the ball to the new 2nd player in the line whomÂ repeatsÂ the exercise.
Organise a group as shown in the diagram. On the coach's command of "Yes" the batsman (white player) runs up and down between the 2 posts. At the same time players in team B (blue players) throw and catch the ball to each other. As the batsman completes their 2nd run the next batsman sets off. Count the total number of catches made when the last better completes their final run.
1) rolls ball out a short distance. 2) runs in, underarm flicks to 1) who catches ball. 1) puts ball down, runs back and tags 3) then 2) rolls ball out. Repeat process until all have had a go.
Set Up: Players work in groups of 3 with 2 balls. Players A, B and C should be spread out over 20m, with player C standing in the centre between 2 cones. The Drill: Player A rolls the ball between the cones towards player C. Player C moves towards the ball, picks it up and releases it underarm back to player A. Player C then turns and repeats the drill from player B. Player C to work for 30 seconds then rotate i.e A to C, C to B, and B to A.
Two cones are placed left and right in front of the feeder. Ball is fed into play. The closest player creates a wall to stop the ball and the other play backs up the first player. The ball is then thrown to the post and the ball thrower follows the ball to the post.
In 3’s, 2 feeders, worker sets up to catch over the shoulder and passes it back to the same feeder – change so that takes a catch and sends ball to opposite side. CP Set self first Thumbs up, Eye on the ball, Give with the elbows

1 feeder in the batting square with 1 ball. Rest of the players in a line in the field. The feeder feeds different kinds of ball into the field for the front player of the line to collect and return before going to the back of the line to wait for their next turn
Divide players into two teams, one fielding and one batting. The fielding team bowls 4 consecutive balls to a better. Once the batter has hit all 4 balls into the field, all of the batters on the batting team must run around all the bases at the same time, as many times as they can before all of the balls have been returned by the fielding team. The next batter then does the same, and all of the batters run when all 4 balls have been hit. Do this for each batter on the batting team, before the fielding team goes in to bat. Winner is the team with the most rounders scored.
Organisation: Divide the group into 2 equal teams and organixe as shown in the diagram. The ball is rolled underarm towards the opposition's goal. 1 point is scored each time the ball passes between the cones and strikes the wall behind the goal. If sufficient space is available overarm throws (bounced) may be used. Equipment: 1 ball, and 4 marker cones.
