The Underarm Shower is a
variation of the Shower pattern in which the high throws are made
under-the-arm (as the name implies). This creates a very distorted and
lopsided trick in which the high throw becomes nearly vertical and the
horizontal pass is directed away from its receiving hand. This makes the
pattern awkward to juggle, while also providing an interesting aesthetic.
To learn the Underarm Shower, start with one ball in each
hand. Position your non-dominant hand at the center of your body, and then
cross your dominant hand underneath your non-dominant hand. Make a high
throw from your dominant hand toward the center of your body while
simultaneously passing the ball in your non-dominant hand toward the
dominant side of your body. Quickly uncross your dominant hand and catch the
passed ball. The high throw will then be caught by your non-dominant hand.
Practice this until the throw/pass combination becomes second
nature. To add in the third ball, start with two balls in your dominant hand
and one ball in your non-dominant. Position your non-dominant hand in the
center and cross your dominant hand underneath (as done in the previous
step), then make a high throw from your dominant hand. As that ball peaks
and begins to descend, make a second high throw from your dominant hand
paired with a horizontal pass from your non-dominant hand (as done in the
previous step). Catch the first high throw with your non-dominant hand, and
then catch the second one.
Practice this until you can make all three throws
comfortably. To run the full Underarm Shower, simply make another throw/pass
combination after the second high throw, and then repeat the cycle. The
Underarm Shower will take some time to get used to, but the pattern itself
is fairly easy.
