I assist with the coaching of an U8 team and it very evident that some boys can throw and others cannot. It is a skill which I am sure can be learned, but I cannot find anything specific to teaching a youngster to throw a ball correctly. I note that the Auussie team are using an ex-american baseball player in their coaching line-up, and I would not be surprised if it were for this very reason. I would be very interested to find out how to get the youngsters throwing accurately and with power. It would obviously stand them in good stead for the rest of their cricketing life, no matter what level they participate at. After all, we all have to be fielders!
