Purpose: Grooving best fielding practices in a match-like environment. Everyone is encoraged to support each other as a team in the field.
Description: The field can be set for any game situation the coach likes. The coach hits the ball out anywhere on the field with the closest fielder catching or picking up and returning the ball to the end nominated by the coach as quickly as possible. Other players offer support through backing up, helping with chases and providing a partner for relay throws. Rotate fielders through positions every so often.
Variations: Batsmen can be added to try and score runs through proper calling and running.
