Two-Player Juggle

Heading 1


Heading 1

For two players to cooperatively juggle three balls together as long as possible

-Fundamental Movement Skills:

  • Manipulative Send

    • Throw

  • Manipulative Receive​

    • Catch​

-Equipment List:

  • One stability ball per pair of players

-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Two players stand opposite each other.

  • One player holds one ball; the other player holds two balls (or has the second ball on the floor immediately in front of her).


  • The player with two balls throws one ball to the player with one ball.

  • Before the player with one ball catches the thrown ball, she tosses her ball to the first player.

  • Before the first player catches the thrown ball, she tosses the second ball to the first player.

  • Players continue juggling balls for as long as possible.


-Questions & Notes:

  • Players begin by tossing one ball back and forth so that the ball is on a nearly straight-down trajectory when it is caught. Then introduce a second ball and have them learn to toss two balls. Then add the third.

  • Side-by-Side Two-Player Juggle: Players stand side-by-side and juggle the balls (this is considerably more challenging than standing opposite each other).
