  • The athlete stands with feet spread approximately hip distance apart.
  • The coach initiates the movement by throwing the ball toward the hands of the outstretched arms of the athlete on one side.
  • The athlete catches the ball at chest height with extended arms, rotates in a horizontal plane, wraps the ball around the head, then releases the ball on the opposite side towards the coach’s chest.
  • Allowing the athlete to follow through, the coach tosses the ball back into the athlete‚Äôs hands on the same side for the athlete to repeat in the opposite direction.
