Exercise to control the reception movement:

per 2 players a ball + hoop

  1. player A throws the ball in arc to player B with hoop
  2. Player B tries to estimate where the ball will fall by putting down the hoop.


Points of attention:

  1. Correct reception position
  2. sinking through the knees


You can extend the exercise by playing reception with the hoop leaning on the ground.
