  • Each team has an equal number of foam balls.


  • On the signal to begin players attempt to keep balls away from their side and tossed over to their opponent's side.

  • Is there a helpful strategy in terms of where to toss the balls?

  • Is there a helpful strategy in terms of defending and returning the balls as quickly as possible?
