Dynamos WEEK 5 - 6th June 2021
Plan: 4 x groups of players; 1 x Group Leader per group (4 in total) plus 1 x Coach per group (4 in total). Total of 8 Leaders/Coaches.
1. ‘Team Juggling’ - warm up / fielding activity
groups of 4/5 in a circle of cones
roll or throw the ball to each other - DON’T JUST THROW TO YOUR FRIEND!
get everyone to move 1 or 2 cones to the left and then to the right
follow your throw and go to the cone the catcher was on
add an extra ball - good luck!
cones and complexity permitting, we may have an outer circle of cones too
calls from the coach:
■ move 1 or 2 cones to the left
■ move 1 or 2 cones to the right
■ follow your throw, move to the cone you’ve just thrown to
■ inner circle / outer circle
2. ‘Bat to the Sides’- groups of 6-10 - playing cross bat shots, the pull (likely) and square cut (unlikely)
demonstrate the shots
one bowler/feeder (need to bowl short - coaches may need to step in to give batter a chance)
everyone else fielding - most on the leg side including a wicketkeeper
have targets for scoring points
5-10 goes each then rotate clockwise
■ FIELDERS - it’s a soft ball, it won’t hurt!
3. Game of Countdown Cricket
