Organisation: Groups are organised as illustrated. The coach or teacher acts as the server initially and serves the ball under arm one bounce to player 1 of the batting team who is standing at the crease. Player 1 hits the ball and runs to first base or more depending on where the ball has been hit. To complete a run a batter has to successfully reach fourth base; they then join the back of the line if successful. Batters can be caught out bowled or run out; once out they must join the back of the line. Fielders must attempt to retrieve the ball and throw it to the nearest base fielder or to a base fielder where there is a chance of a run out. An innings can be a timed innings or until all are out. The team with the most runs are deemed winners.


To acquire and develop batting fielding and communicating skills. To select and apply skills and tactics to score more runs whilst batting by hitting the ball into gaps and running to appropriate basis.
