This cricket coaching session plan has been designed as a template for coaches to follow with their teams during training. The activities and drills can be tailored to all ages and abilities.
Two Person Ball Skills:
Quiet Catching, One-hand, half-volleys, side to side, over the shoulder, getting to the ball on the second bounce.
- Batting Relay Race: Practice the batting skills from the last session through a batting relay race. Players hitting the ball on their bat while running around a cone 10 metres away, before returning to pass the ball onto the next in line. If the ball hits the ground, the whole team has to go down for a push-up. The first group to finish gets to pad up and bat first .
Bowlers aim to take three wickets across each batting group.
– If the Batters win, the bowlers run to the fence and back with the last 3 back doing 10 push ups. If the Bowlers win, the batters run five 3s. You can also use a whiteboard to record the bowlers take wickets during the session.
Game to Finish
