    Catch

    Receiving an object with the hands.

    Catch
    • 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?
