Receiving the ball

The receiver should:
  • move forward onto the ball to make the catch
  • extend their arms - reaching towards the passer giving a target to aim at (looking to catch the ball early)
  • keep their hands up ready with fingers spread (thumbs close together)
  • watch the ball all the way into their hands until certain all fingers and thumbs are in contact with the ball
