Hi Craig,

In the warm-up, you`re looking to get the players heart rates up as well as getting them used to the feel of the ball in their hands. Therefore anything that gets them moving and focusses the players minds on the session or game is great.

The drill attached below will sharpen their hands and get their heart rates up so that when it comes to the game and that first chance comes to them, they don`t put the catch down.

Hope this helps!

Fielding Warm Up Game

DESCRIPTION
Work in groups of 10. Two rows of cones are set up, 5m apart in width and 2m apart. Players get into pairs, opposite each other, lined up behind the first cone with one ball. The first pair must exchange 5 catches before running diagonally to the next cone where they repeat the 5 catches. After this players run to the next cone where they now roll the ball 5 times to their partner. The partner performs an underarm pick up and returns the ball to their partner. upon reaching the end players jog back to the start and repeat.
