Tennis balls, footballs, basketballs, lacrosse balls, ping pong balls, soccer balls... they all offer plenty of opportunity for play and development in an infinite number of ways. Hand-eye coordination, peripheral vision, depth perception, timing, rhythm, accuracy, precision, ‘feel’... I think if you’re not playing at least some kind of game with some kind of ball on a regular basis you’re missing something important. And if you’re one of those people that say “oh I was never good at sports” or “I’m not very coordinated that way” then you’re missing the point. Being good is not the point. Good is relative anyway. Play, develop, and enjoy the process and the many, many benefits.
You can use the few examples shown in the video to try and if you have some cool, fun, challenging games to share then I’d love to hear about it.
