3 ball basic cascade

(inside throws)

A basic 3 ball cascade is done with inside throws, where the balls are thrown on the inside of the pattern and caught on the outside. Each throw goes underneath the incoming ball.

In a cascade done with outside throws, the balls are thrown on the outside of the pattern and caught on the inside. Each throw goes over the top of the incoming ball. This pattern is called a reverse cascade or a full reverse, because this is what a video of a normal cascade looks like if you play it in reverse.
