You can do the „Ham-Sa“ drill, which is similar to the ‚1-2″ and the „hopp-hit“ drill, with kids by using names with two syllables like „Hann-nah“ or other two short words like „go-up“, „let’s – go“, etc to give the mind a job. Do it in the red court and with the red ball.
These drills are classic „trick the mind“ strategies. in this child-friendly version the drills also give the kids a feeling of the rhythm of the jumping ball. Other effects are promoting concentration and focusing.
