Something on the Head

Cloth
Sock
Hat (sideways and just sitting on top, not fitted on)
Paper Cup

1-handed Catch on the Bounce
P (player) is standing in front of Coach.
Coach tosses ball left and right of P.
P must move w/ body organized (head is still for eg.) and catch ball on 1 bounce w/ outside hand, while staying balanced.
P tosses caught ball away and quickly recovers to home/start.

The ball bounces once before the catch.
P must be balanced as he controls the ball.
