How it Works

Hold a bat in one hand, and use the bat to keep a balloon or lightweight ball in the air. Do this while walking along a line on the floor or along a bench. Do it while jumping, hopping, or performing any other locomotor skill. Use both the dominant and the non-dominant hand. Ensure participants can do it on the ground before they progress to a bench. Ensure the bench is secure.
