Description: pairs with ball and throwing up.
  • Standing on one leg
  • The trainer always gives the assignment
  • Other ideas include lowering through the leg you are standing on knee bending and standing on your front foot instead of your whole foot.
To throw in the squad position in different ways.

Description: pairs facing each other with 1 ball. The one in squad position, the other not.

  • Throwing over.
  • The player who is standing normally also throws normally, the other one gets a special assignment. Such as: throw with left, with right, with 2 hands shooting, soccer way, swinging from side to side, with a bounce, and so on.
Not too long, for example throw and change 5 times and that a few times.

Variation: have the player who throws normally give the orders on how the other should throw.

Strength training / balance.

Description: players sit on the floor, in rows of 3, at a distance that they can just touch each other if they both extend the arm.
  • On one side starts a ball; can be a small ball for convenience. On the other side are 3 caps. When sitting, only the buttocks should touch the ground, nothing else. So you have to hang back a little bit.
  • The task is to pass four caps 1 by 1 to the other side. On this other side starts a ball, this ball has to pick up the caps one by one.
  • So the exercise starts with the ball + one cap going from left to right. Then only the ball goes back to the left, to go again together with a cap to the right.

The longer the exercise the heavier. So make the exercise shorter (fewer caps or a row of 2 instead of 3 children) to make it easier.
You can also have the children sit closer to each other.

More challenging
By making the exercise longer it becomes heavier. This can be done by bringing more caps back and forth and by adding more children, but also by giving extra assignments. For example, get a cap behind your back or under your legs first.

Be careful not to make the task too long, however; it is then better to do a shorter task again after a half minute break.
