Claiming

Play this game in two teams of 3 to 6 players.

The two teams are in the middle of their own side of the field.
They put their hands on each other's shoulder, not everybody has to see the other side of the net properly.

The ball is brought in at one side with an arch.
The ball has to be played over the net in three times, but:

  • The players can only get out of the circle when they have first yelled "let go!"
  • Where a player who has claimed the ball gets out of the circle, the circle closes
  • When the ball has been played over the net, everybody joins the circle


A team deserves a point when they score with the opponent in three times.

To make the exercise run smoothly, it is good if the players give each other high balls and. of course, claim the ball on time. The goal of this game is to have the players communicate about every ball played. Make clear that they have to be aware that not everybody is always in the right position to play the ball

Variation:
Have the circle squat or turn circles on the forefeet when the ball is on the other side of the net.

Suggestions and improvements are welcome.
