walking-eights-in-groups

  • Make trios
  • Each trio has a ball.
  • Player in the middle keeps running an 8. Every time this player comes in the middle, a ball is thrown:
    • A throws (or plays overarm) the ball to B (in the middle)
    • B throws the ball underhand back to A and then runs around A until he is back in the middle.
    • Meanwhile, A plays the ball to C
    • C returns the ball overarm to B.
    • B plays the ball underhand back to C and then runs around C until he is back in the middle.
    • Enz.
  • after 2-3 minutes the player in the middle is changed. 


Variation: 

  • To make it simpler, player A and C can throw instead of playing overarm. Could be underhand throwing/catching or overarm throwing/catching.
  • To practice standing still when playing/throwing, player B can throw and catch underhand.
