-Questions & Notes:

  • Safety considerations:

    • Make sure there is not debris (extra birds or clothing items) laying around that might cause a player to slip when running to the other side of the court.

  • Instructional tips:

    • The higher the bird the more time team mates have time to get onto the court and play a successful return shot.

  • As a cool-down:

    • Works well as a cool-down.

    • Using more players than 5 will slow the pace down if going with 5 is too vigorous.
