DRILL OBJECTIVE
This objective of this drill is to raise body
temperature in preparation for more
strenuous activity and increase awareness of
how current conditions affect the ball.
Additionally this drill develops hand eye
coordination and encourages good athletic
body position.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Each athlete starts with one ball.
The drill begins with one athlete throwing
their ball to their partner in this drill. (athlete 1
throws the ball to athlete 2)
Before the thrown ball reaches athlete 2 they
must throw their own ball up in the air, catch
the ball thrown to them, throw the caught ball
back to their partner and then proceed to
catch their own ball.
Once each pair has managed this
successfully several times then they should
try to throw their own ball up every time the
ball comes to them.
Athletes should be encouraged to do this drill
facing all directions in the wind.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Try to speed it up so it eventually
looks like the two athletes a juggling.
Then add an additional ball so there
are 3.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Athletes should focus on throwing their own ball
straight up in the air, this way it is easier to catch
when it comes down.
2 The ball that is thrown across should be thrown fast
and flat otherwise it may bump into the other ball.
3 Athletes need be in the athletic position to enable
them to catch balls away from them.
