Catch | Ophea Teaching Tools


Receiving an object with the hands.

  • Keep eyes on the incoming object
  • Move body into the path of the incoming object
  • Make a target with the hands to receive the object—thumbs in for objects above the waist, thumbs out for objects below the waist
  • Receive the object by “cushioning” it into the body
I can also...
  • catch beanbags
  • play baseball
  • play wheelchair rugby
Self Check Questions:
  • Can I anticipate when the object is going to reach me and move my body accordingly?
  • Do I bring the object into my body once it reaches my hands?
  • Can I make up tricks like clapping or turning before catching?
