Remind kids to use their hands not their arms to catch the ball!


  • Make sure you are always watching the ball
  • Keep your eyes open at all times


  • Catch the ball with your hands (young kids may scoop with arms)
  • Out and ready for the catch
  • Hands and fingers are relaxed
  • Slightly cupped hands to catch the object
  • Close hands and fingers to grip the ball during catch
  • Bend elbows to absorb throw


  • Feet move the body in line with the ball being caught

Keep your eye on the prize and the prize is the ball!
