This is a basic drill to practice the Bounce technique in a stationary position

Organisation

  • Divide the group into pairs; one football per pair
  • Each player in turn bounces and catches the ball and hands it to their partner
  • Alternatively, one player in each pair bounces the ball repeatedly for one minute, catching the ball securely after each bounce   
  • The second player in each pair counts the successful attempts by their partner
  • Players switch play after 1 minute

STEP Variation

Task - As the players become more proficient, challenge them to bounce the ball at an angle for their partner to catch
