Minimum 10 athletes
Age: 8 and up
Equipment needed: tennis balls (one for each pair playing)
Each player begins by throwing the ball back and forth to each other (either underhand or overhand) until one of the players in the pair drops the ball.
If the player drops the ball, they must do the following and remain in that position to continue throwing and catching:
The game continues until only one pair remains or for a set period of time. To make the game more challenging, increase the distance between the pairs after a set number of throws.
Minimum 5 athletes ages six and up.
Participants stand in a circle, each participant receiving a number.
Determine a throwing pattern around the circle. For example 1 throws to 4; who throws to 2; who throws to 5; who throws to 3; who throws back to 1.
Start with one ball and practice the pattern. When the group has mastered the activity with one ball, a second ball is introduced by having two people start throwing at the same time.
The activity may be made more difficult by introducing three balls and so on up to however many athletes are in the group.
