There is a saying that you don't play the cut shot until June - this isn't exactly the most constructive or helpful advice, but the principle of it is good - be aware of playing too many cross bat shots on early season wickets when the ball is moving around and seaming off the pitch.
Encourage young players to play as straight as possible then. You can do this by practising straight bat drills, but also providing competition or incentives for playing the ball straighter (cones as targets or bonus runs during practise maybe).
