 Wall Ball Routine

Find a hard surface that is about 10 feet tall; preferably smooth and away from windows or breakable objects. A brick or block wall will work. (Note, many players use the side of the concession stand) 15-30 minutes several times a week will greatly improve your throwing and catching skills.

Stand about 10-15 feet away from the wall. Pick a brick, block or spot and try to hit that.

  1.       10 times in a row throwing over hand with your dominant hand.
  2.       10 times in a row throwing over hand with your non-dominant hand.
  3.       10 times in a row throwing over hand with your dominant hand with a quick stick.
  4.       10 times in a row throwing over hand with your non-dominant hand with a quick stick.

  8.       10 times in a row throwing over hand with your non-dominant hand and catch cross handed.

Mix it up! Vary the rep and patterns. Move along the wall as you throw and catch. Throw and catch one-handed. Add some fakes and dodges.
