Catching the ball high

High passes happen, and as a receiver you need to be ready for something unexpected. Because of the variety of passes that you might receive here are some basics to high pass catching: The first and most important is that you extend your arms and keep your hands together in a diamond type shape to catch that football. When you have your hands extended you are performing a proper catch, remember, and dont ever catch it with your body. Once you have your hands around the ball, dont take your eyes off the ball but follow it right into your tuck. When you practice a high catch you are going to perform it subconsciously on the field, so remember extend the arms, catch and follow through.

Conditioning Drill: Up Downs

Up downs is an excellent conditioning drill that will improve reaction time and endurance. This drill starts by having the players run in place as fast as they can encourage them to get their knees up as high as they can. From time to time the coach will signal to the players, by whistle or a command, to get down meaning that they drop down do a push up and get back up as quickly as possible to run again. Because this drill can be very taxing, it is important to increase the time spent at this slowly over time as the players strength increases.

Making and effective Angle Tackle

The reason for angle tackles is simple, cover the shortest area to get to the tackle, but there is still a great need to practice this technique. Accomplish this drill in pairs, having one teammate act as the offense, or ball carrier, running in a straight line and the other as the defender coming in at any angle. As the defender he will need to adjust his body to cover the shortest distance towards the ball carrier, and make the stop by placing his foot squarely in front, and remembers for safety to put his head in front of the ball carrier. The tackle is completed as the defender wraps his hands tightly around the opponent, straightens his hips and pushes the opponent to the ground or off sides.

Low Ball Catching Techniques

Great plays are made through dedicated practice of the fundamentals. Making the plays means that you have practiced the non-optimal situation and know how to react to them. Perfect and not so perfect scenarios should constantly run at football practice. Here are some great techniques in coaching and learning the low catch. First keep the pinkies together down low to make a shovel. This ensures that the ball will not slip through your fingers. Locking your pinkies prevents the football from falling through your hands. Second, bend your knees and get low. Use your hands and not your body. Keep your eyes right on the ball. Last, concentrate on catching it first and then worry about the defense, and scoring some more yards.

Ex-Indian diplomat’s passport revoked

Tuesday, May 16, 2006

The Ministry of External affairs has revoked the passport of Mr. Harish Kumar Dogra who was removed from his post as India’s High Commissioner to New Zealand in April. The government has also suspended the passports of his wife and domestic help. India has informed Wellington of the developments and has said that travel documents would be issued to Dogra and his family to enable them to return home. Sources say Dogra had applied for a New Zealand visa which would have enabled him to stay in that country for another 40 days. Dogra had been posted as High Commissioner two years ago and was recalled after charges of human trafficking were made against him. The former High-Commissioner, however, refused to obey the recall order and accused Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran of impropriety, asking the latter to either prove the charges or resign.

Fisher Capital Management Outlook: At the end of the quarter, markets reacted negatively to mixed economic news, signaling a potential correction off the recent highs. The strong rally since the markets low of March 9, 2009 has left observers wondering whether rapidly-rising stock valuations have become prematurely rich and earnings expectations somewhat stretched.

While we are cautious about the performance of the market in the short term, we continue to expect a slower, but more robust and sustained, smile-shaped economic recovery in the long run.

Tabatha Alvarez

The rent a car in Puerto Vallarta is a business that was initially started due to the shortage of transportation facilities. These transport facilities can be categorized as intra city bus services, subways, local trams. Additionally, lack of affordability by people themselves who are not able to afford a car as the prices of used and brand new cars are too high for a person to afford one, was and still is a major factor. Furthermore Puerto Vallarta car rentals are also very reasonable and offer a wide range of vehicles that one can choose from which is important for families who want to drive to a destination on their vacation or a businessperson or a tourist who travel frequently to different cities and countries and would rather prefer puerto vallarta rent a car service with a chauffeur or without a chauffeur. This service keeps one\’s mind at ease as the problem of reaching and especially how to reach a certain destination for a meeting or adventure is not a headache.

Additionally renting a car is not very sophisticated. First and foremost you need a driver\’s license and one can always reserve the car of his or her choice online and also find out the cost of the vehicle for the duration of his intension. The minimum age for renting a car is usually 18 and above and in some situations expensive cars are usually rented off to 21 or 24 and above age groups, this policy varies from one Puerto Vallarta rent car company to another and also vary from country to country.
