  • throw the ball from behind head, spinning towards target in one smooth action keeping elbows tucked in close together
  • follow through towards target

  • communicate effectively with team mates
  • outmanoeuvre opponents into space
  • make an effective, quick jump reaching to catch ball with arms extended to full height
  • deliver the ball accurately to team mates either in air or once landed
  • provide safe, strong and stable support from in front of and behind the jumper to aid jump, control the jumper in the air and bring jumper back down to ground safely
