Rounders Drill Demonstration


Simple throw and run race, from the starting cone to the finish cone (drill is ended when a player stumps the cone).

Teams of 4 (or more) players stand in a line, with the first player with the ball in hand. On the coach's call the first player turns and throws the ball to the next player.

Once the ball has been thrown this player runs to the back of the line, awaiting their next turn to catch and throw.

The winning team is the first one to reach cone B.

Coaching points

Players who run to the back of the line should be no more than two steps away from the next nearest player (otherwise this drill could be over in a matter of two throws).


To make this drill harder you can increase the distance or add cones to make players change direction.
