DRILL OBJECTIVE
The objective of this drill is for athletes get to
practice performing one arm digs.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
An athlete or coach tosses a ball to the side
and in front of an athlete who is either on
their knees or on their feet.
Performing this drill from the feet is more
difficult technically as well as being more
exhausting.
After tossing the ball in front of the athlete the
‘trainer’ then moves backwards and this time
tosses a ball to the other side of the athletes’
body.
With only one athlete and coach the balls can
be placed on the ground prior to the drill
starting otherwise another athlete can hand
balls to the ‘trainer’.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
Standing is more advanced than
kneeling.
Ball can be tossed randomly to either
side.
The athlete could be required to get
up and play out the last ball that is
dug.
TEACHING POINTS
1 Refer to drill 7.1 for details on technique for the one
arm dig.
2 Learn to use the hand closest to the ball.
3 If digging each ball from a standing position make
sure you get up off the ground as quick as possible
between each play.
