Throw - hit en suspension

See the video


1 ball for 2 - 3 pupils

Aim of the task:

Throw the ball and catch it before it hits the floor, and combine more and more complex actions.


Throw send back in suspension

Hitting the ball in suspension is a test for the dissociation and coordination impulsion / hit:

  • if the body is moving up the hit is often too strong
  • if the body is moving down this hinders the push up of the hands on the ball
  • if the body is at the highest point of the trajectory the action of the hands can be mastered and be precise.

We find again the problems of tempo in the impulsion and of high point of the suspension. In addition, a push of the arms must be triggered at the right moment.

We see here several levels of problems and of realisation: from the projection of the body "wholesale" to more dissociated actions. The introduction of the net as an obstacle creates a reference point in the trajectory.

We will find again these tasks in the specific work on hitting techniques.
