  • On your signal to begin, the first player from each team pulls the ball out of the middle of the circle and rolls it on the floor around the circle in a counterclockwise direction. When the first player has completed the circle, the number two player takes the ball and rolls it around the circle.

  • Encourage the other team members to jump up and down and encourage the player going around the circle.

  • Soccer Circle Relay: Played the same as Circle Relay except that players use their feet and legs to move the ball around the circle.

  • Bounce Circle Relay: Played the same as Circle Relay except that players bounce the ball as they move it around the circle.
