This is a basic drill to practice the striking on the ground technique

Organisation

  • Divide the players into pairs; one pair per tyre
  • Standing one to each side, each player in turn strikes the tyre
  • After a set time or number of strikes, the players change sides

STEP Variation

Task - Allow the non-striking player to count the number of strikes the striking player makes in a set time; challenge each player to beat the total of their partner

Equipment - As the players progress, use a fixed ball, such as the ball and pin apparatus
