The High-Low Shower is a
variation of the Shower that can be best conceptualized as a small Shower
pattern being juggled underneath a much larger one. This requires a decent
amount of speed and accuracy, but the most difficult part is learning to
make very small throws right after making large ones (you will naturally
want to make successive throws at the same height). That being said the
High-Low Shower is still a fairly easy pattern overall, and is quite fun to
To begin learning the High-Low Shower start with two balls in
your dominant hand and one ball in your non-dominant hand. Make a very high throw
from your dominant hand toward your non-dominant hand and then quickly
follow it up with a lower throw in the same direction followed by a horizontal
pass from your non-dominant hand. The lower throw should be significantly
smaller than a normal Shower throw. Catch both
the high and low throws in your non-dominant hand.
Practice this until you can accurately perform both the high
and low throws. To run the full pattern simply make another high throw—this
time with a corresponding horizontal pass—before catching the previous high throw, and
then make another low throw and repeat the cycle. The High-Low Shower can be
an intimidating pattern for beginners, but learning to quickly make
throws of widely different heights is very useful for future tricks.
