Pretty good ball bounces. The timing on most of them is good and I like how you varied the bounces. I don't subscribe to the theory that the ball has to be so fluid in shape as it goes up and down. I like to maintain the circular aspect of the ball until after it makes contact with the surface and then bonces up depending upon it's velocity, and I avoid the tendency to exaggerate the stretch on the way down.

This is a basic exercise that will always help with understanding the foundational aspects of animation.
