Rounders Drill Demonstration

Description

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.

Coaching points

Ensure players turn the shortest way around and that they focus on all aspects of the skill - including the throw!
