Warm up:

“Whistle” drill:  Start with the first movement in each pairing.  When the whistle is blown (or the Trainer calls “switch”), perform the second movement.  Transition back and forth between the two movements until ready to progress to the next pairing.

Skill work:

Running Bounce Catch:  One at a time, athletes jog diagonally towards the wall.  From a point approximately 10 ft from the wall, the ball is thrown at the wall and caught on the rebound.  The closer to parallel the path to the wall is, the more difficult to anticipate the rebound.   Feel free to increase the challenge with successive attempts and the relative ability of the thrower.
