Some training for the high wild pitch comes by default if you catch enough pitching lessons/practices or at least that seems to have been my DD's experience almost daily over the years catching her sister! LOL So yes, practice recovering and being able to fire an accurate throw when needed.

ps. both of my girls played hoops also and I NEVER saw my catcher DD jump as high under the basket as she did with all her gear on behind the dish when grabbing that high, wild pitch! ;-)

My players give me real mean looks when I explain to them that jumping requires both feet being off the ground at the same time. Sometimes I wonder if they think they're just gonna float away if they actually leave the ground.
