Why yBall?

yBall focuses on “ABC‘s”

AGILITY, BALANCE, COORDINATION. SPEED, SPACE AWARENESS , MOVEMENT,TRACKING. AND MUCH MORE.  

This is the direct quote sent to me, from the BBC1 sports presenter MIKE BUSHEL.

The new England coach Eddie Jones told me he loved the feature and the look of yBall and will use it in his training sessions…will spread the word. 

yBall is now based in Branksome Heath Junior School, for nearly one year, within each session a average of twenty plus students playing yBall.

Todays session of yBall at Bournemouth Uni was very competitive. With the cummunity team playing the BU team. The cummunity team picked two new  players, in Will Harding and Gary Islip both player settled in very well into game score numerous goals, and defending well.

At the half time period working on Zone defence, to tie the game. Some great movement on and off the ball from both teams, with teams understanding, IF YOU CONTROL THE BALL, YOU CONTROL THE GAME.

2017 will see yBall more active in the cummunity, in more schools, and entering the DORSET SCHOOL GAMES, plus the BRITISH BEACH FESTIVAL.
