How it Works

Split the group of participants evenly into two groups and sit them with their backs turned towards the center line, approximately 20 feet apart.
Assign numbers to each player on both sides. After the numbers are assigned, each team will have a number 1, 2, etc.

In the center place a ball. When you call out a number, the goal is to be the first to reach the ball, and bring it back to your side without being tagged by the other person. If you make it back safely, your team scores a point, if you are tagged, the ball goes back in the middle, and a new number is called.

Applications This activity works on the participant’s agility, coordination, decision making, reflexes and listening skills.

Coaches can use different equipment depending on the sport. This activity can be played on all environments: court, pool, snow, ice, court and gym.
