How it Works

Split the group into 2 teams. Divide the space by the center of the gym/ice. Each team will own one half of the space. The coach lines up the balls on the center line. Once the coach says go the players will run and throw the balls onto the other side of the gym. The game continues for a set amount of time. At the end of the game, the team with the least number of balls/pucks on their side of the space will win.


Works on hand-eye coordination, throwing and speed.


Can be played on a court, field, gym, and ice.
