The Zip Throw Portable Unit Ball has an adjustable height that allows the athlete to work on catching, passing, blocking and shooting at any height. If you want to work on raising the elbow, getting the shoulders out or more intense leg demand, simply raise the ball.
The athlete will quickly observe the critical function of the wrist and different releases, as well as the necessity of a strong eggbeater. Many unique drills have been designed for drivers, goalies, and centers to address and isolate nearly every technical movement. One can practice unlimited reps without the ball ever hitting the water. Having several Zip Throw stations is ideal for a coach who needs to work on specific skills or leg conditioning for more than one or two athletes at a time. It is recommended that teams use 4 to 8 units based on their team size.
The Zip Throw Portable Unit has a 36 gallon base to create over 300 pounds of stability when it is filled up with water. No stanchion holes are necessary for this design. It can be set up or taken down at any pool in a few minutes. It is recommended that you set up in deep water. The finished tubing fits snugly into the base to support the weighted ball for all kinds of dynamic water polo exercises. This unit comes with a single ball. The drain cap allows for the water to be returned to the pool. Choose from a 1.5 kg ball, or a 2.0 kg ball. The 1.5 kg ball is recommended for youth. The 2kg is recommended for the older and stronger athlete.
