-Setting Up:

  • Two players position themselves in a push up position with their feet on a Bosu ball and facing each other approximately 4-6 steps away from each other.

  • One player has a beanbag/ball.

-Instructions:

  • When the players are ready to begin, both players begin to walk their feet off, off, then on, on… the Bosu ball.

  • The player with the beanbag/ball attempts to slide/roll the ball between the players' feet and through the hands of the opposing player.

  • If the opposing player stops the beanbag/ball that player attempts to score on their opponent.

  • If the ball goes through the player's hands then that counts as a goal. Retrieve the ball, establish positions and continue play.

  • If it is too easy to score have players move further apart from each other.

  • After each goal, switch stopping/rolling hands--or switch after every roll

  • Questions for Understanding:

  • How does distance from the goal influence success? ​

  • Does it make a difference which hand is used for support? If there is a difference, how can that best be corrected?

  • How does it feel to achieve success, or failure?
