The aim of the Saturday morning sessions is to introduce the principle cricket techniques of catching, overarm and underarm throwing, overarm bowling, and batting. Qualified coaches are assisted by parents.  The sessions are structured to give time a) to children playing independently of parents (usually when revisiting techniques already learnt) and b) to family members joining their children on the field.  The parent helpers act as 1:1 assistants to the players and help feed or collect the ball whilst new skills are learnt.  Coaching points are made to both children and family helpers so that they know what has table been taught and able to assist with reinforcing these techniques when playing in the garden at home.  As the players become more comfortable with the techniques, the parental role decreases so that by the time the players reach the end of the U7 year they are playing independently in preparation for the U8 season in which league cricket is the norm.
Parents should be prepared to be involved in the field with their children for anything up to 40 minutes of each training session.
