Handling Warm Up

Two teams, one starts with balls, one without. Players move around area on the jog, Team 1 throws ball overhand and Team 2 catches ball at high point. Team 2 distributes ball underhand and Team 1 collects ball on the ground. Then switch so both teams practice all 4 skills.

Progress to all throws being in the air and all receptions dives.

- Catch ball at highest possible point with both hands

- Lead with one knee raised

- Keep knee behind hands when collecting on the ground

Keepy Up

Split players into smaller groups depending on size of main group. Teams must keep the ball in the air by catching at the high point and releasing back into the air before their feet hit the ground.

Primarily hand-eye coordination exercise. Still emphasise catching at highest point and leading with one knee.

Progress to see which group can keep the ball up for the longest.
