HIGH LOW RAPID FIRE DRILL
PURPOSE: To prepare players for game play by practicing catching and throwing the ball quickly even when receiving inaccurate throws.
EQUIPMENT: Glove and Ball
SET-UP: Depending on age/ability, players should be approximately 30-60 feet apart.
EXECUTION: Players throw the ball back and forth to one another as fast as possible. Rather than making an accurate throw to the chest, players alternate between throwing the ball too high and too low to their partner. This allows players to practice being quick even when receiving inaccurate throws.
MODIFICATIONS: Since players are practicing catching and throwing of errant throws, players could also throw the ball far left or far right.
COACHING TIPS: To make this drill even more fun and effective put your players in a competitive situation by having them race to a certain number or throws or set up a timed challenge where players count out how many throws they can make in an allotted time.
"Not every time do players receive accurate throws from their teammates, players should be able to handle inaccurate throws at any time."
