Preview Plan

Description

Create a mini-pitch for every two players. In the picture there are 4 pairs and 4 pitches.

Players must try and throw and catch the ball a set number of times consecutively, without making a mistake.

Every time they drop the ball they should start counting from 1 again.

The set number and distance between players depends on their ability.

When a pair reaches the set number (say 5 for beginners) the pair can move to the next pitch and the players on that pitch move down (both pairs start from 1 again).

Coaching points

The pair on the top pitch (pitch 4) have to try and get as many consecutive throws and catches while they are on this pitch.

Start off with a ball per player and get them to throw the ball in the air( above their head) and catch the ball.

Once all the players can do this move on to this practice.
