Big Target Practice
While we all get a little nervous before games, we all enjoy competition because it makes things fun and exciting.
So discover a way you can do that yourself during practice – and it’s simple.
You’re going to need a bucket (any kind), a bunge cord, a plunger (new is best) and a basketball (can also be a soccer or volleyball). Wrap the bunge cord around the bucket and then slip the handle of the plunger through the bunge cord so that the rubber part sits above the top of the bucket. Then place the big ball on top of the plunger. The reason you need the plunger is to hold the bigger ball. And, the reason you need a bigger ball, like a basketball, soccer or volleyball is to make your target larger.
Now you’re ready to use this as a target for pitching practice, place on a chair or another bucket for throwing practice, or pace it out by the pitcher for hitting practice. Sure, it’s hard but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it. Challenge yourself and your teammates by counting points:
+1 if you hit the bucket
+5 if you hit the stick of the plunger
+10 if you knock the ball off
Make things fun and challenging for yourself so you’ll work harder and get better!
