Ideally your players should always be looking to back one another up, whether it be from a powerfully struck shot or a throw back to your wicket-keeper - this sort of fielding ethos will stand your players in good stead, as they help each other out and aim to avoid gifting away easy rounders to the other team.
What's in the session?
To get your players working on their ability to read the angles of the game and anticipate the loose ball this session starts with a sideways ball collecting warm-up, using the long barrier technique, before then progressing onto a series of fielding reaction exercises before finishing with a full pitch game!
What is backing up?
As a fielder prepares to catch the ball another fielder, at a further distance, positions themselves behind them, so that if the first fielder misses the ball the damage will be minimal, with the second fielder being able to sweep up behind them.
