This is often suggested as the first trick to learn after
the Cascade, although we recommend learning One High Throw
first, as that gives you the skill of adapting your timing
to an incoming ball. Over The Top is a simple example of the
One Throw Trick.
Juggle a normal cascade and select one ball. It helps if
it's a different colour. The aim is to throw that one ball
from an outside position and have it go right over the top
of the cascade, and then to catch it and keep juggling.
Over the Top
You'll find to start with that you simply don't have time to
break your rhythm and throw from the wrong place. To give
yourself more time it can help to concentrate on the throw
before. Make that throw slightly higher and much narrower
than usual. That gives you both more time and space to make
the throw over the top.
If you pick a single ball from a cascade and do Over The Top
every time you throw that ball then you end up with Tennis.
If you do every right (or left) hand throw Over The Top then
you get the Half Shower, and if you do every throw Over The Top
then you get the Reverse Cascade. So that's three different
Juggling Patterns for the price of just one throw.
