Ball Throw & Service
Before a boy or girl is able to serve they must first learn how to throw. This is particularly important for kids aged between 3-6 who are still learning the fundamental motor skills necessary to play. With the serve being one of the hardest basic shots to learn, it is important that this follows a progressive sequence.
For this kids service drill, this is how it works:
- Begin by practising throwing at cones from the service line. The children should count how many times they throw it in, and if they hit a cone they get double points. (They will aim to beat this score next turn – only competing against themselves and not each other).
- If the coach sees appropriate they can move back gradually to the baseline.

Note: Generally only two players on, on either side of the centre mark at each time. Therefore the boys and girls should throw three balls and then rotate with anyone waiting in line behind (if there are more than 4 kids present).
