Listen up. Cricket practice has just got an upgrade!! ‘Think Outside the Box’ is designed to showcase new and innovative Crazy Catch drills, with England star Tammy Beaumont and Director of Cricket at Millfield School, Mark Garaway.
These 6 drills show cricket players, clubs and cricket coaches how to use the Crazy Catch rebound net to improve skills and unlock new, fun ways to train. Cricket practice can be very regimented around either a typical cricket net session batting and bowling or a game out in the middle. Yet, there is a world of opportunity to get to grips with batting, bowling and fielding as well as incorporating team games, warm ups or reaction training just by being creative with top coaching aids like Crazy Catch, the Ultimate Rebound Net for Cricket.
Oh wow – the Wildchild 2.0 is just awesome. The kids haven’t stopped using it since it arrived and are even making up their own games to play with it. Very well made, easy to set up and pack away, and the online resources are simply brilliant. We were helped in choosing the right one for our club by the amazing Kate and this is the biggest hit going for our team. It is so versatile for activities and various abilities, and totally perfect for winter training and summer fun too.
Within a matter of days, I could see a dramatic improvement in Oliver’s catching ability, both in technique and coordination. A knock on effect of this has been much improved confidence in his catching, not to mention the fun and enjoyment from playing. Crazy Catch is brilliant for developing and honing catching techniques and provides hours of fun”
“The best thing for me about Crazy Catch is the fact that anyone can use it and be challenged to whatever level. It is so much fun… I have seen kids who don’t even like sport play with it all afternoon and love it. Seeing player’s skills and coordination develop as quickly as it does using the Crazy Catch is a real thrill for any coach”
We’ve started using Crazy Catch in our pre-match warm ups, It helps the guys focus on their hand-eye coordination in the first instance, but we also use it to make warm-ups more competitive. It’s also important that players are practising the sorts of actions and skills and preparing the muscles they will be using during the game. Crazy Catch has proved invaluable in helping me design these sorts of routines.
Add fun and competition into your cricket training or just play for fun at home. Try these three great challenges as demonstrated by Tom Moores and Tammy Beaumont. The twenty catch challenge is a variation on a Crazy Catch classic. Can you take the pressure and record the most catches in 20 seconds on the INSANE side of the Crazy Catch.
