Challenge 9 - Bounce Catch

Challenge #9 - Bounce Catch

Are you ready for the next Davies Sports Personal Challenge? Challenge #9 is Bounce Catch. To complete this activity, you will need a tennis ball. Simply, drop the ball to the floor, let it bounce and cup your hands and swoop underneath to catch it.  Make sure to keep your eye on the ball!

What are the benefits?

  • Develop

Practising exercises such as Bounce catch can help to improve concentration, increase hand-eye coordination and improves overall reactions.

  • Refocus

Short bursts of physical activity help to refocus distracted minds. The challenge gets the whole class moving together for 60 seconds and then return to the lesson focused and re-energized ready to learn.  

Is Bounce catch too easy? If you're looking to increase the challenge why not try a different variation:

  • Try bouncing the ball with one hand and catching it with the same hand
  • Bounce the ball with your left have and catch it with your right, alternate hands each bounce.
