Long Throw to Partner

Heading 1

-Objective:

Heading 1

To succeed at passing and catching an object with a partner the greatest number of times

-Fundamental Movement Skills:

  • Manipulative Send

    • Throw

  • Manipulative Receive​

    • Catch​

-Equipment List:

  • Throwing object (ball, pool noodle, bean bag...).

  • Scoring pieces (bean bags, popsicle sticks...)

-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Partners stand opposite each other at pre-set lines that are a distance that is difficult (but not impossible) to succeed at. Could have different distances or objects that people can challenge themselves at (A distant group, B distant group, C distant group....).

  • Players at one side hold the throwing object.

  • Partners stand opposite at the other line.

  • Place scoring pieces in the middle

-Instructions:

  • On the signal to begin, the player holding the throwing object attempts to throw the object to their partner who attempts to catch the object behind their line.

  • If successful or not, players run to switch positions, and the player who attempted to catch the object is now the thrower....

  • If successful, the player who caught the object runs and picks up a scoring piece of equipment.

  • Once all the scoring objects have been collected, or after a preset time, pairs of players count their scoring pieces to determine winners for the different groups.

  • Variations: Specify a specific throwing technique (underhand, overland, bounce pass, volleyball set...).
