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.
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.
1 player hits 4 balls anywhere into the field. Once the batter has hit all the balls they run around all 4 posts as many times as possible, before the fielders get all the balls back into the square.
In this game the batter tries to score as many rounders as they can by hitting the ball through the area so it either flies over or rolls through the area out the end or either side. The only criteria is that the ball has top enter the front of the area to be able to score a rounder. When the ball is caught the catching fielder becomes the bowler the bowler becomes the batter and the batter becomes a fielder
Split the group into teams of 3 or 4 aside set out an area with cones where the posts would be on the pitch. one ball. The game follows netball rules and is played inside the area. The aim of the game is to throw the ball to one of your players by one of the posts for them to touch the post without having to run.
Set up in 2's with 1 bat and ball. Player B must stand opposite to player A, so that they can see the end of the bat when the batters arm is fully outstretched. The aim of the game is for player A to hit the ball into space, and both players race to retrieve the ball first. Player B is in charge of the drill. They shout "CLEAR". On hearing this call player A self feeds the ball and hits it safely into space. Whoever reaches the ball first is the next player to hit the ball. If you get to the ball 3 times in a row you win a point.

As someone who is new to coaching this site was just what I needed, drills that I can study on the PC and then take with confidence to my training sessions.

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.
What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
I can't get enough of the Sportplan, It has given me back the enthusiasm i was starting to lose. My girls are so keen and are ready at 14 to take the next up in their game. Sportplan will help no end.
