Training System – New Skills

Batting Training system

  • TECHNIQUE
    • Building technique will be our primary focus – the outcome we wish for is a solid technique under pressure
  • REPETITION
    • Each player will perform a high volume of reps and each rep performed will be performed with an absolute focus, discipline and attention to detail.
  • SPEED PROGRESSION
    • Each skill with start with shadow work and players will only progress once their technique holds up to a particular speed. 
      • Shadow
        • We want the player only to think about the focus point which is
          • Correct Initial Movement or
          • Correct shot Execution (Bat path)
      • Stationary ball
        • The focus remains on the focus point which is
          • Correct Initial Movement or
          • Correct shot Execution
      • Drop ball (If  you don’t have a spinfire)
        • Once the ball comes into play, players tend to shift focus from their movement or correct bat path to the ball. The focus should be 90/10.
        • 90% on the focus point
        • 10% on the ball
    • Bowling machine – slow speed
    • Bowling machine/bowlers – normal speed
  • VERY IMPORTANT – If your technique breaks down at a certain speed you have two choices
    • Go back to the previous speed or 
    • Shift your focus back to technique.
