Defensive Pop Up Throwing Technique and Drills

Following on from last week's attacking pop up drill we move onto the defensive side version. Effectively, this kind of throw is made following the completion of a dive towards your non-throwing side.

Pop Up Fielding Practice

As a fielding coach, I would get so excited when some of the players take their practice on the training ground into match play.
