This is a basic drill to practice the Overhead Block technique


  • Mark out a distance 5m wide using cones
  • Divide the players into pairs; one ball per pair
  • Player A throws the ball underarm for Player B to block overhead
  • Player B allows the ball to fall to the ground and strikes it back to Player A
  • Reverse the roles after a set number of throws

STEP Variation

Task - As the players become more proficient challenge them to block the ball to catch it in the non-dominant hand
