Suggested Grade Level:


Face your target

Hold the ball in medium space with your non-striking hand (imagine the ball sitting on a batting tee)

Use a bowling motion (step with the opposite foot and bring your striking hand back)

As your open hand comes forward, strike the ball with the heel of your hand

Do not toss the ball in the air during the striking motion

Follow through toward your target
