This is an intermediate drill to practice the Overhead Catch which encourages the players to move towards the ball

Organisation

  • Divide the players into groups of four
  • Mark out a distance of 6m using cones; place a further marker 1m from the first cone
  • Each player in turn runs out to round the far cone before throwing the ball underarm for the next player to catch overhead
  • The ball should land at the 1m marker; the catching player moves forward to receive the ball at the 1m marker

STEP Variation

 Space - To increase the challenge; Increase the distance between the first cone and the marker
