Rounders Drill Demonstration
Players stand about five meters apart with one ball between them.
- Players throw the ball to one another using the underarm throwing technique (step onto opposite foot. Thrower's palm should point at their partner).
- The player with the ball throws the ball overarm at the floor, about half way betweem them and their partner. The other player must react to the bounce/bobble and catch the ball.
How many catches can your players make without dropping/fumbling the ball?
It's important players don't throw the ball too hard - the ball shouldn't bounce higher than hip height on its way to the other player.
- Watch the ball,
- Heel of hands together to catch,
- Fingers around the ball,
- Pull ball into your chest.
