This is a fun routine to develop the High Catch technique


  • Mark out a court using markers
  • Mark out a centre net or barrier using cones to divide the court into two sides
  • Divide the players into 2 equal teams  
  • The objective of the game is to kick the ball into the opponents section of the court
  • If the ball is caught it is returned in the same way, but if the ball is not caught, the player who dropped it or who nearest must surrender as 'prisoner' to the other side, effectively increasing their numbers
  • The game is over when all the players of one team have been taken prisoner by the other

STEP Variation

Task - Require the catcher to Fist or Hand Pass to a team mate immediately on landing before the ball can be kicked back to the opposite side
