This intermediate drill to practice the overhead catch challenges the players to catch the ball as they move along a line


  • Mark out a triangle using cones approximately 5m apart
  • Divide the players into pairs; one ball per pair
  • The players are positioned at two corners of the triangle
  • Player A throws the ball for Player B to catch as they move to the free cone
  • The ball should be thrown approximately half way between the two cones
  • Player B then throws the ball for Player A to catch and so on

Step Variation

Space - To increase the challenge; enlarge the triangle. If there is enough space, players may strike the ball for their opponents to catch
