-Questions & Notes:

  • Safety considerations:

    • Make sure teams are far enough apart that they do not inadvertently hit players from other teams who may be gathering a misplaced ball.

  • Instructional tips:

    • Accuracy is critical and then speed.Can prescribe a certain throw–chest pass, bounce pass, overhead pass, and baseball pass, and may insist on a good throwing being one that is caught in the air or after only 1 bounce.

  • Variations:

    • Triple Pass Wall Relay: The same as Throw to a Wall Relay except that each player does 3 consecutive passes to self before the next player gets the ball.

    • Kick to Wall Relay: The same as Throw to Wall Relay but used in Soccer with the ball kicked instead of being thrown.

  • As a cool-down:

    • Works well as a cool-down but may want to decrease the distance to the wall and add a few players per team.
