WHO: 3-8 GRADERS
What: Wall Ball Challenge
Timeline: Now through April 9th
Prizes: Athletes Connection Gift Card and 60 Minute Individual training session with Coach Gervat
Wall Ball Challenge can be accomplished with a mini stick and sponge ball! Find some wall space in your basement and start going to work. If you can get outside, do it! First make sure your stick can throw correctly! Some mini sticks aren’t strung well and need to be changed. Always do wall ball with a stick that can throw well. If you don’t know, bring it to wall ball Wednesdays, or winter ball and a coach will help you!
The wall ball challenge is built to get your hands better before the season starts. Wall ball is like dribbling, or shooting a basketball. You need reps to get your hands better. The better your hands get, the better you are, the more fun you’ll have!!! This workout is geared toward each age group. We’ve attached a video to see how to break down certain form.
You will have measured reps for each throwing technique. You will also time this. The better you get the less time it will take you to do the drills. Really try to get the ball in and out of your stick as fast as possible as you get better. Race the clock with good quality form and function and you’ll see vast improvement!
