U9 Coaching afternoon with MHS

The U9s enjoyed a lovely afternoon of cricket with the MHS girls. We mixed the girls up for a coaching afternoon whilst we all get to grips with developing the skills necessary to play and enjoy the game. We started off altogether with a series of warm up drills and relay shuttles focusing on running speedily up and down the length of the wicket and sliding the bat into the crease, picking up ground balls and throwing them back to the stumps, and general ball handling skills, with some throwing and catching activities. We then divided up into 3 groups and rotated through a circuit of activities – one focusing on bowling, another on batting, and the 3rd a mini game of non-stop cricket. The girls really enjoyed the afternoon and made great progress with their skills, ready for the first round of matches next week! Well done.
