DESCRIPTION

If your players are:

timid catching the ball or
just have trouble catching a hard pass or
you want to incorporate some ball work with fitness

the following is a great drill.

Requirements : At least 8 players, 1 ball between 2 players.
Half the players are throwers. Each thrower has a ball and is positioned in a large cross-ball formation.

The remaining players are the workers and form a line at the end of the court. Each worker, in turn, drives hard towards the first thrower to receive a pass, then passes it back to that thrower, then push off quickly and changes direction to head straight to the next thrower. Continue through all the throwers. Walk back to the start, repeat.

Variations:

Bring the throwers in closer, so players have to change direction much quicker.
Each pass to the workers could be varied.
For juniors - have the throwers closer together.
For seniors - really stress the coaching points below.

Points to remember :
Check for and stress the following key coaching points:

Work with intensity and make sure you keep driving towards each ball strongly until you have caught it.
Be balanced when passing back to the throwers.
Accurate passes back to the throwers are important.
Strong hard passes by the throwers make the drill very good for practicing catching.
