January 2009 -- Paleta Goma

Welcome to Children's Paleta Goma! We're off to a great start for 2009 with 20 participants. All children are welcome, ages 5 and up.

After running laps around the Kantxa the future Txapelduns learn the importance of stretching before and after playing.

Left over right and STRETCH to the ground

After warm up, the children take their own ball and paleta and hit the ball against the wall. The volunteers and myself take this time to play one on one with the players and work on technique.

Next they practice using their right and left arms and stepping into the ball as they swing.

Aupa Casey, way to hit the ball

Working with Casey on "aire" - hitting the ball in the air before it hits the ground.

Vincent prepping for the 2014 Mondials

A little one on one with Vincent. The players are all quick and eager learners. Mil Esker to my volunteers - Xabi Berrueta, Aitor Berrueta and Isabelle Bushman.
