Here are 4 easy drills you can do to improve your hand-eye coordination:
1- Play Catch: This is something that we have done since we were kids. Throw the ball against a wall and try to catch it. To make it more fun and interesting, throw the ball with right hand and hold it with left.
2- Jump Rope: Jumping a rope or skipping a rope can improve your hand-eye coordination by leaps and bounds. Make it enjoyable by introducing some fancy footwork.
3- Juggling: When you juggle two or three objects simultaneously, your brain trains to focus on several things at once. Start with slow circles and with two balls, you can then increase the number of balls to 3-4.
4- Dribbling: This will not only increase your hand-eye coordination but even your patience. Start with bigger balls like Basketball and then move to smaller balls like Tennis balls. Start slower and then try to dribble with different hands.
