Hand-eye coordination drills are found in almost every ball sport and we as floorball goalie can benefit from the different drills. Some drills are including footwork others are focused on the single hand-eye coordination. A mixture of both is perfect for us to improve our skill to trust our hand-eye coordination also in unbalanced situations.
This hand-eye coordination drill is actually for basketball players.
How to do it?
Put one ball in each hand
Hold the balls upwards– palm points to the sky
Start bouncing the basketball with one hand, hold the floorball in the other hand
Bounce the basketball to your other hand. Meanwhile, throw the floorball in a bow to your other hand
Again and again and again :)
How to change the degree of difficulty:
Start with crossed arms
Exchange the basketball with a smaller ball
Increase the frequency of bouncing the ball from one hand to the other
Swap bouncing and throw ball - it is much harder to catch a bounced floorball ;-)
Do it on the knees
