-Setting Up:

  • Each player is in a scattered formation in the playing area.

  • Each player holds a reaction ball.


  • Each player drops the ball and tries to let the reaction ball bounce as many times as possible before catching it.

  • If a player does not catch the ball that drop counts as one and the catches count for nothing.

  • If a player catches the bll that drop counts as one and the catches counts for the number of bounces the reaction ball made before being caught.

  • Players count the number of drops required to get to the desired bounces--lowest number of drops is best.

-Questions & Notes:

  • Is there anything that makes it easier to catch in terms of the drop or in terms of the player's ready position?
