Get jumping for the high catch

Introduction

Being able to catch a high ball is one of the most important aspects of a Gaelic footballers game.

It is vital in order to gain possession of the ball so that the team can go on and build attacks.

Hand-eye co-ordination is one of the biggest skill areas in the sport and it is very important in this particular part of the game.

To time your jump and your catch too is difficult, but as with any skill it will improve with practice.
