THROW AT TARGET WITH HULA HOOP

Set up a net and strap two Nerf blue targets to the net. Set up a hula hoop in front and at about two yards away from the net. Instruct athlete to step into the hula hoop to begin throwing.

NOTE: Coaches may use the color foot prints and place those on the ground as a guide for athlete foot placement.

Instruct athlete to throw a ball and try to hit the target. Athlete can try and hit different parts of the target for a different number of points each time. Watch the athlete’s throw. Look for an underhand throw or overhand. Watch for trunk flexion while throwing instead of a trunk turn and feet facing the target. Note which type of throw and stance the athlete has begun with. Instruct athlete to stand with feet about shoulder width apart and with body turned to the left or right depending on which hand is being used to throw. Instruct athlete to throw the ball at the target as hard as possible. Repeat three times before next athlete’s turn.
