This is a basic drill to practice the Overhead Strike technique


  • Divide the players into groups of three; one ball per group
  • Mark out distances of 10m and 20m using cones
  • Player A throws the ball underarm for Player B to strike overhead to Player C
  • Player C retrieves the ball and plays it back to Player A to repeat the drill
  • Repeat for a set time before rotating positions
  • Ensure the players practice striking off both their right and left sides
