• Overhand Throwing & Striking (Fri.)
     
     
    * It's time to work on our OVERHAND throwing and striking either indoors or outdoors.
     
    * Whether indoors or outdoors, LOOK OUT for objects (including pets) where you live.
     
    * While indoors, use a soft object to throw and strike (squishy ball, socks, crumpled piece of paper, beach ball, balloon, inflated ziploc baggie).
     
    * If outdoors, a heavier/harder object can be thrown (bean bag, tennis ball, softball, baseball), but a soft object should be struck (beach ball, balloon, inflated ziploc baggie).
     
     * Make sure you have enough room to move.
     
    * I don't want you to break anything or yourself.
