Maddie Hinch : Selected in the GB Hockey squad for Rio!

Congratulations to our new Crazy Catch ambassador Maddie Hinch who has been selected in the GB Hockey squad for Rio this summer. Maddie is one of 16 players who will make the trip to Brazil along with 3 reserves. This is a first Olympic games for Maddie and our new video shows some of the training that she has been putting in with Crazy Catch to help take her game to the next level.

Train INSANE or remain the same is all about pushing yourself in training so that in the biggest games, against the best opponents, you are at your best and can make those match winning saves. Maddie is one of the world’s top goalkeepers and is a current European gold medallist … she and the rest of the team are sure to leave no stone un-turned in their preparation for the tournament this summer. The women’s competition is sure to be fascinating with a number of nations on their day, able to win gold. GB find themselves in pool B alongside India, Japan, USA, Australia and Argentina, who were crowned Champions Trophy winners at Lee Valley last weekend.

Keep following Crazy Catch over the summer for lots of new video content with Maddie and we wish her lots of luck for the summer … be sure to tune in and give the girls all your support.

Behind the Scenes on the James Taylor shoot with Pro Direct Cricket

Pro:Direct Cricket joined us at Trent Bridge back in March when we filmed with James Taylor for our “Catches Win Matches” video and photo shoot. Pro Direct captured this interview with James where he talks about his fielding hero’s and how important fielding is for the England Cricket team PLUS this behind the scenes video of the day. James is seen using the Crazy Catch range of premium rebound nets to develop his fielding skills…

As you can see from the video, the pace of the rebound is very quick and the unique patented net technology means that the rebound is very unpredictable on the INSANE side. Crazy Catch is a great way to add fun and variety to your cricket teams training sessions and ensure there are no dropped catches this season! Use  Crazy Catch for close up fielding drills or to improve throwing accuracy, longer throws and also batting technique … the possibilities are endless.
