Refresher Session: Improving Ball Skills and Handling

Rating: 3
from 29 members ratings

This week's skill refresher session is ideal for beginners or out of practice players, as we aim to get players to snap out of the mid-season slump and improve their core game skills.

What's in the Session?

To get the ball rolling we get your players' hands warm, challenging them to pass the ball up 'n' over their heads, around their body and through their legs in a figure of 8! Depending on how experienced your players are you can get players to race one another - who'll be the first player to get the ball round their waist 10 times?

Following these ball handling exercises we then start to work on passing and receiving, to develop good quality passing and receiving, before finishing a full court game to tie everything together.

Good. The ball handing section was great for my Netta's but we don't assess to a wall so the second part was not very good for us
