Points to Remember:
These “Helpers” are also Children and should themselves be supervised, so should not be left alone to supervise Net Bowling/Batting practice as Adult Supervision is also necessary in this situation. They should be ‘Utilised” as an Assistant and not just given a small task and “forgotten” about, as this is not what they want - “USE THEM” to keep the team interested and always completing a skill.
Don’t forget, they may have a greater knowledge of the game then you, so ask them if they are prepared to “lead” fielding drills, so the younger players can see what they can learn from the game. Most of all, they can help you and you them, so work together as a coaching team and the whole team will benefit from the experience.
If you are interested in using a Junior Team Helper, please contact our Junior Coordinator(see Committee Contacts).
