3. Practice tips:

  • Start out by learning to cradle while standing still. Then move on to cradling while walking, jogging, and finally sprinting.
  • Practice both right and left handed.
  • Drills to try:
    • “Anytime/Anywhere” drill - practice cradling whenever/wherever you can (in the house, in the yard, at the park, etc).
    • Pivot drill (aka “nail in foot” drill) with a parent or friend.
