• Crazy Ball

  • Purpose

    Gets players warmed up and ready for practice. Also helps improve players’ vertical jump

  • Drill Setup

    Players line up behind a ladder or line on the court or pair up across from each other depending on the exercise

  • How It Works

    Crazy Ball – Players stand about 6-8 feet apart and underhand toss a crazy ball back and forth. The crazy ball, which doesn’t have a uniform surface, takes crazy hops to test players’ hand-eye coordination.

  • Coaching Tips

    Players should be focused on the task at hand.

    All exercises should be done with speed – practice habits carry over to games!

    All jumps should be quick and powerful.
