Knees bent, ball released inside the square and shoulders and hip in line.
Look for a good pendulum motion when bowling. The ball should reach the recipient between knee and the top of their head height, otherwise it will be classed as a no ball.
When a right hander bowls towards a left hander it is important that the bowler moves to the edge of the bowling square.
Players work in fours with one batter, one bowler and two fielders.
The basic structure of this drill is that the ball is bowled to the batter who has to try and hit the ball.
To improve hand-eye coordination there are 3 stages to this drill.
Firstly the batting player should hit the ball with their hand (or yellow hand CP where available), then with a paddle bat and lastly a rounders bat.
The position of the back stop can be close or far behind the batter. The positioning helps the batter decide where to bowl.
Approach the ball at speed and as you get into line with the ball, twist your upper body, leading with the shoulder furthest from the ball. Bend both knees, so that the knee of the leg nearest to the ball touches the ground, but it is also next to the back of the heel of the other leg. With fingers down and head forward, pick up the ball and then stand back up ready to deliver an overarm throw.

Players take it in turns to run out to the rolling ball, bend down, pick it up and then turn and throw it back to their partner. When picking up the ball players should aim to put their non-throwing side foot on the outside of the ball. A right-hander would place their left foot to the outside of the ball. They would then bend down, twist as they stand up and then throw back.
