-Questions & Notes:

  • Variation:

    • Use two balls and have a race between two teams.​

      • Rather than using a circle players lie in a line--players alternating like a zipper.​

      • The race it to get the ball to touch a wall at the other end of the start side and back to the start line wall without falling off--if the ball falls off then teams must resume from the start line.

      • Once a ball has gone past a player, the player must stand up and run to the other end of the line ready to pass the ball again...

  • Questions for Understanding:​

    • How are some tactics and skills that improve success with this activity?​
