The Overhead Level contains 3 different levels: White Red Yellow The white level contains the One Hopper and the No Hopper skills. The red level contains the Pop Fly skill. The yellow level contains the No Hopper.
All the skills in the Overhead Master level are performed exactly the same as the other levels except: The ball will hit the wall. Keep your eyes on the ball as it passes over your head. Turn your body so your back is facing the throwing wall. The ball will not bounce.
Overhead Master Rules After the ball leaves the wall it must travel over, not beside or below, your head The eyes must track the ball the whole time. Student must catch the ball palms up. Students cannot not stand and turn their back to the wall but show movement away from the wall.
Rules of Throwing You must use an overhand throw. This means the ball must be thrown over the shoulder. You must throw with only one hand. You must step forward when throwing the ball. Transfer your weight from the back foot to the front foot. When you step to throw, you must use opposition. This means whatever hand you are throwing with, you must step with your opposite foot. For example, if you throw with your right hand, you must step with your left foot. (Left hand throw- right foot step.) You must stay behind the appropriate (correct) color line. Whatever color level you are working on is the color line you must stay behind when throwing the ball. Do not hit the ceiling.
Rules of Catching You must only catch the ball with your hands. The ball cannot touch any other part of your body. You must catch the ball from behind the appropriate (correct) color line. Whatever color level you are working on is the color line you must stay behind when catching the ball. You must catch the ball before the “out of bounds” line (green line).
4. Step on the opposite foot (foot closest to the east wall) of your throwing hand you are using.
5. Turn your hips/waist. This is when you transfer your weight. 6. Throw the ball.
5. Throw the ball. 7. Follow through: If right handed, your right hand will hit your left thigh/quad/femur, and if left handed, your left hand will hit your right thigh/quad/femur.
