In this study, we examined if early-year elementary school children were able to learn selecting appropriate hands movements for catching and if they learned effect to improve the catching performance by learning the selection of appropriate hands movements. The subjects were 245 elementary school 1•2 years. They had a 15-minute practice in the beginning of a PE class. In 10 PE classes out of 20, the children had a practice of catching with hands. In the next 10 classes, they had a practice of selecting overhand catching for a ball coming higher than their breast and underhand catching for a ball coming lower than the breast and locomotion of trunk towards the ball. We evaluated their catching performance with success rate of catching a ball, rate of successful catching a ball with hands among the total of catching trials, success rate of selecting appropriate hands movements and catching pattern. The main findings were as follows. <br>1) The early-year elementary school children increased the rate of selecting appropriate hands movements through the program. After learning the rate of selecting appropriate hands movements increased higher than 70%. <br>2) Early in the program, more than half of the children were able to catch with hands, but many of them still caught with inappropriate hands movements in the direction of the ball. However, children were able to determine the selection of appropriate hands movements with the later program of learning the selection of appropriate hands movements, and were able to catch with hands 80% of children.
