Purpose: To practice high catches in a pre-game/training warm up situation
Description: There are 2 balls in the game, starting in opposite corners. At the same time, fielders lob the ball up into space for a fielder to run and catch the ball about halfway.
Having caught the ball, the players throw a catch into the other gap between fielders and move on to the next corner. These balls are caught by fielders running in.
Continue the practice as long as you like, pausing if a ball is dropped.
Variations: The drill can be performed with players running the other way.
