Aerial Mirage Jugglers

Juggling term Zone of Catchability

Zone of Catchability
This concept covers which throws are catchable by a passer. It includes the incoming club's distance (in all directions) from the passer's shoulder (or desired catching location), the orientation of club (all dimensions), its speed of rotation, the angle (flight path) and timing of its arrival, and the speed of rotation of the club. The zone will expand or contract depending upon the pattern being juggled, and what amount of attention the juggler is using on incoming passes. Great passers have a very large ZoC and seem to effortlessly return a perfect pass. When uplifting jugglers, it is a good idea to work on expanding your ZoC while still being able to deliver perfect passes to your partner(s).
