DESCRIPTION

The player starts in the 'press-up' position with one hand balanced on a ball.

The player then lifts the ball and throws it in the air so it bounces.

He/she then has to catch it with the opposite hand by changing the supporting arm.

COACHING POINTS

PROGRESSION

As players get stronger ask them to do the drill supported by their forearm.
