Catch Me

Here's a simple warm-up perfect for young beginners. Great for one player or one dozen. You will need enough room for them to spread out.

Each player has one ball. Player tosses ball high, then catches their own ball after one bounce. Toss should be at least head high. Some players inevitably get into a competition to see who can a) toss the highest and b) actually catch it. That's great - let them!

Variation
  • Have a Toss Off where players are eliminated if they drop their ball. Last player left is the winner. Remember, ball toss must be at least head high.
  • Toss Off can be a combination of most catches of highest tosses.
  • Pairs of players toss/catch to each other.
