Relays are a simple way to organise a warm up, they are quick to set up, fun, and can be adapted to be used in many different ways using the same basic set-up.

Relays can also be an easy way to organise practices of many skills. They keep players active, particularly in large groups.

Examples of activities that can be done in relays:

  • Bowling
  • Catching and throwing
  • Bat taps or cricket-bat hockey
  • Dynamic movements such as side-steps, high knees, arm swings
