This is an exercise to develop coordination skills which uses a training ladder


  • Place a number of targets at either side of a training ladder
  • The players bounce a ball on the targets as they move through the ladder
  • Use a variety of balls and targets to vary the exercise

Key Points

  • Ensure the ladder is properly laid out; reset it if necessary before each ‘go’
  • At first concentrate on moving through the ladder and stopping to bounce on each target; gradually increase the pace


  • An inventory of equipment to support ABC exercises is available in the Resources section
