Play Tip PLAY Tip

Learning how to catch a ball can be as easy as 1 2 3!

Catching a ball can be harder then it looks! Catching balls develops good shoulder stability and torso stability. You can help make the process easier by offering the right balls in the right order. Here is a three step process to try: 1. First start with a sturdy balloon, a punching balloon without the elastic is ideal. It can be easier to start in a sitting position about 2-3 feet away. 2. Next, try with a light high friction ball. The 9 and 15 inch Yadda balls are ideal. ,3. In the final step, stand or sit a little further apart and bounce the Yadda ball to the child. The bounce gives the child a little extra time to catch the ball. Note: For children with latex allergies, balloons contain latex but the Yadda balls are latex free.
