Netball #secretweapon training drills with Crazy Catch

The new Netball season is now underway so tell us … How does your Netball team use Crazy Catch in training?? Here’s 5 short drills to get your game sharp using your teams #secretweapon … Crazy Catch. Use the SANE side for a simple, consistent rebound or the INSANE side for a much more unpredictable and challenging catch!

Work on your passing and receiving skills and get your handling and footwork skills sharp for the new season with this drill with England Netballer, Sasha Corbin. Once you have mastered these 3 variations, flip over to the INSANE side of your Crazy Catch for extra challenge and fun!

Run to a cone then quickly turn, whilst catching a ball high on extension thrown onto the Crazy Catch by a partner then rotate. Use the INSANE side for an even more challenging pick up.

Set up a square 5 x 5 metres and start in the middle with a ball. Throw the ball towards a player holding the Crazy Catch Freestyle and they are going to pop the ball around the square with different heights and distances to stretch the player working. We suggest a set of 6 throws and catches before swapping.

Tom Moores joins Tammy Beaumont as a Crazy Catch ambassador

Nottinghamshire Wicket Keeper Batsman Tom Moores has joined England Women’s star Tammy Beaumont in becoming Crazy Catch ambassadors for the upcoming year.

Tom enjoyed a breakthrough season at Nottinghamshire, hitting career best scores in all three formats, including his maiden First-Class century against Somerset at Taunton, whilst averaging over 30 with the bat in both the T20 Vitality Blast and Royal London One-Day Cup. Behind the stumps, Moores who has represented England at U19’s level, claimed 39 dismissals in the County Championship and recently picked up the Green and Golds Player of the Season award.
Tom grew up with Crazy Catch and describes hours and hours of fun playing in the garden diving off trampolines trying to take spectacular diving catches from his rebound net which has developed now into a passion for wicket keeping. Fast forward to 2018 where Tom now uses the Ultimate Rebound Net to train his reactions behind the stumps and to keep his training fun, fresh and varied.

It’s been a stellar year for Tammy Beaumont to say the least with her standout performances with the bat powering England to a historic World Cup win in front of a packed house at Lord’s in July 2017. Last year new and innovative drills featuring Tammy were a real hit with cricket players and coaches and showed new and innovative ways to improve not only your catching skills but all aspects of your cricket game for beginners and juniors right up to professionals competing at international level. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqXqrR3PaRs7mI1zWFnzhl241PxSBhplq

Tammy and Tom will appear in a series of new Crazy Catch challenges out early 2019 whilst also providing coaching tips in a series of wicket keeping drills. Crazy Catch is available from leading cricket retailers and online on the Crazy Catch UK store https://ukstore.crazycatch.com/

If you are looking for a rebound net to help improve your skills, look no further than Crazy Catch – the original and best rebound net with an unpredictable, INSANE ball return … These recent customer reviews are taken from either Amazon reviews or via our retailers

Superb. My son is a goalkeeper and we use this as a good way of working out for him. Can be used by the keeper to stand in front of and warm up with straight on throws but we’ve found it very useful as well to have him or me to the side so that the ball rebounds for a variety of diving saves. Best of all he can work this on his own so if no chance to to get a training session in he an just pop in the garden with it.

What a great bit of kit will keep the kids and grown ups having fun for hours folds up flat so is easy to move and store away but once you start you just cant stop playing with it ,It would be great if you have a small yard or garden as you don’t need much room to play it and its a game you can play yourself so if you have only one child who likes to catch balls this is the baby for you,

We were introduced to this by a county squash trial – it is a very quick way to check (and improve) hand eye coordination. One side bounces back “sanely” the other “insanely” (not at all what you were expecting!) Great fun for the holidays too

This is great. Got it for my 11 year old son to improve his cricket skills- but great for all ages including adults.

Amazing. Delivered promptly. We have two happy boys playing together and by themselves in the garden. One with a football and the other playing catch/cricket.

Kids love it! Delivered on time! Excellent!

Cricket Drills | We Coach Cricket take on “Think Outside the Box” from Crazy Catch

You Tubers We Coach Cricket have taken inspiration from our Tammy Beaumont Think Outside the Box drills which we filmed last year which show the versatility of the product and how creative you can get with your coaching drills to improve batting, bowling and fielding skills!

How to MASTER the SHORT BALL with a Crazy Catch

This one specifically is used for training against the short ball, whether your duck, sway or play the choice is yours. The Crazy Catch really mixes up the feed as it rebounds off the net erratically so each ball is different and really keeps you on your toes!

How can I BAT on DODGY Wickets?

In this session Dan and Kieran look to recreate the batting against spin using the Crazy Catch. They have the Wildchild Classic and Upstart Classic laid flat with the INSANE sides facing up for extra unpredictability. This is a great way to practice batting on some of those dodgy uncovered pitches in the UK!!
