VIDEO: Speed catch drill for handling warm ups

Use this warm-up activity to improve awareness, catching, looking up and speed of thought.

 

  1. Have a working player facing three passing players.
  2. Two of the passing players have a ball each.
  3. One passes to the working player who shapes their hands to catch the ball and then passes it back to the player without a ball who didn’t pass.
  4. As soon as that pass is made, the other passing player passes the ball to the catching player.
  5. Go for 30 seconds before swapping roles.

TECHNIQUE

  • The hands should be in shape so they take the ball effectively.
  • The players need to look forward as they catch.
  • It’s all about the catch, not the pass.
