PitchVision Academy | Cricket coaching, fitness and tips

Brand New PitchVision Site is Here!

Welcome to the Academy section of PitchVision Interactive.

As you can see, we have a brand new site for you to enjoy. You have everything you had before from PitchVision, plus so much more. It's the same great advice, videos, drills and experienced coaches. You can still get to the archive for the huge back catalogue dating back almost 10 years.

Only now, you also get an incredible mobile experience. You can view the site on every screen from a tiny phone to a giant computer. Even better, it will all be tied in to the new PitchVision app so you can video and upload your training and matches right from your phone and onto PitchVision for review. After all, wherever your phone goes, you go. So why not use it to play better cricket?

One small thing is that the site is still being upgraded and looks a little sad on desktops at the moment. Please bear with us while we finish the decorating. It's a work in progress. Everything will be back to normal as soon as possible.

Enjoy and leave your feedback!

Wicketkeeper Standing Back Drill

This is a cracking drill for wicket keepers standing back using equipment that is becoming commonplace within coaching kitbags around the world.

We are presently in a "specific preparation phase" of the programme, so much of the aim of our sessions are build volume into both keepers "catch" and to free up the movement patterns to both right and left handed batters.

The session was for two keepers. They swapped every six balls to simulate overs. We ran the session in a confined net area so I ensured that we maximised the width of the area so the keepers could move freely for offside takes and for simulated outside edges. It's just as easy to run outdoors or in the open, or both.

You can use a Sidearm, bowling machine or bowlers for the drill.

You'll also need Fusion Multi-stumps
