This exercise to develop hand-eye coordination skills uses a ball or bouncy object with an uneven surface


  • The ‘crazy ball’ is thrown up in the air by the player and allowed to bounce
  • Attempt to catch the ball after a set number of bounces
  • Initially practice with two hands before progressing to one hand

Key Points

  • Ensure the players have enough room to move around safely
  • Move to catch the ball at the top of the bounce
