Overarm technique

With this exercise, younger children can practice overarm throwing.

  1. Give everybody a ball and have them show how they play overarm
  2. Is this not correct (for example, no pizza slice, or under the head), correct them, show how it has to be done.
  3. Have them throw against the wall, this provides lots of ball contact.
  4. Make pairs and have them throw over the net, to learn them to play high.
  5. Meanwhile, correct technique mistakes, but stay positive.
  6. Ask afterwards what they have learned, to make them think about it again.
