Andy, here are a couple of warm up drills that I use. One for catching and the other for fielding.

Inside/Outisde

DESCRIPTION
2 teams of 4 players. Players 2 and 3 stand back to back and opposite their partner, players 1 and 4, about 5 metres apart, gradually increasing the distance to 10 metres. The rules are that you are not allowed to move with the ball. You must throw under arm to your partners waist. Commands from the coach. "Inside" - players on the inside (2 and 3) switch positions. "Outside" - players on the outside (1 and 4)run to their right and switch positions. "Partner switch" - switch positions with your partner, remember, you can't move with the ball. "Group switch" - player without the ball switches into another group of 4. "Ball switch" - the player with the ball makes eye contact with another group and then switches their ball. The aim is to enhance the players throwing and catching skills. To develop the drill vary the height of the throw i.e. to the knee or shoulder. Vary the speed of the delivery.
