The purpose of this drill is to demonstrate to the players the correct way to dive and catch a ball and fall properly.
The players line up ten yards from coach in a kneeling position. The player has to dive from this position, stretch out and catch the ball. He should fall on his side and not on his stomach. This drill is done from both sides.
Instruct the player to get a good push-off and try to time the catch so when he falls, he will land on his side and not on his stomach.
