Split the children into pairs 1's and 2's but different from their last pair. 1's will be batting and performing the straight drive off a Tee hitting the ball between 2 cones. No 2's will be stopping the ball and replacing it on to the Tee 3 turns each. Demonstrate or use one of the children as the example. We are looking to have a sound base with the head in a optimal position ready to hit the ball with the full face of the bat.
