Improve your Football skills at home with Crazy Catch

I’m sure there are plenty of you who like to have a kick about in the back garden but, even if you have a few mates over to join in, the casual kick about can quickly become very repetitive and dull. However, help is on hand as Crazy Catch have the perfect solution to add a bit of fun and variety to any back garden football game, regardless if you’re playing by yourself or in a group.

Due to its INSANE rebound, Crazy Catch is brilliant for practising and developing your first touch and volleying skills. The unpredictable nature of the INSANE side means no two balls will come back in the same way, therefore, your reactions and your touch are constantly tested. This also makes it a great training aid for goalkeepers. The Crazy Catch range is also extremely quick and easy to set up, so won’t take away any of your precious footy time, and it is portable, so can just as easily be taken to the park or beach.

Make sure you choose the Crazy Catch Double Trouble range for big ball sports like football. Although similar in appearance to the Classic range, the DT range features two INSANE rebound sides (one for a small ball and one for a large ball) so double the trouble. The Upstart is the smallest Crazy Catch in the DT range, followed by the Wildchild, which is our most popular model, and finally the Professional, which is ideal for clubs and schools. The Freestyle is the only hand held Crazy Catch and a great coaching aid.

Crazy Catch is available from all leading football and sports retailers – improve your skills today!

3 new “Think Outside the Box” drills from Crazy Catch

If like many you have been enjoying the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup over the past month, the performances of new Crazy Catch ambassador Tammy Beaumont who is at the time of writing, England’s leading run scorer with 387.

Just before the event, we filmed some new and innovative Crazy Catch drill with Mark Garaway at Millfield School with the objective of showcasing different ways to use the Ultimate Rebound Net in your training, so we have drills for batting, power hitting, run outs and wicket keeping to name but a few. Check out these three latest Think Outside the Box drills “Inner Ring Fielding”, Stumping and Catching and Fungo Power Hitting – why not give them a go in your next training session.

As well as the Crazy Catch range for cricket which covers (from smallest to largest) the Crazy Catch Freestyle, Crazy Catch Upstart Classic, Crazy Catch Wildchild Classic and the Crazy Catch Professional Classic, we also have some excellent new Vision Ball packs which can help develop visual skills and are used in cognitive decision making and to provide a different pace of bounce/ rebound.

Think Outside the Box | #WWC15 with Tammy Beaumont

Running alongside the Women’s World Cup hosted around England this June and July; Crazy Catch are pleased to announce our brand new campaign “Think Outside the Box” which see’s England’s Tammy Beaumont demonstrating some new and innovative Crazy Catch drills for cricket working with Director of Cricket at Millfield School Mark Garaway.

Says Marketing Manager Kate Costin Think Outside the Box is all about providing coaches with new drill ideas away from the traditional throw and catch concept often associated with Crazy Catch “This series of six drills shows the Crazy Catch as an all round training aid for cricket so we have some great batting drills and ways to use the Crazy Catch to improve your visual skills and decision making”. “Coaches will be able to access these drills via our social channels and also download the FREE PDF which gives all the information you need to run the practice at your school or club so the drill set up, equipment list, progressions, coaching points and some great advice from Tammy and Mark. We are sure that players will be able to make significant gains in their game with this outside the box thinking and hopefully we will see the Crazy Catch being used more creatively as its a hugely  versatile piece of kit”

The Crazy Catch classic range for cricket has both a SANE and INSANE side when used with a small ball. This enables the product to be used at all levels of the game across batting, bowling and fielding skills whilst its also great for team games, warm ups and for gym work incorporating reaction training.
