|How it Works|| |
Variations of this game have been played in many cultures. It trains target shooting, teamwork, and awareness of both the self and objects in space.
Partners find a space away from other groups. Designate a certain time (e.g. 5 minutes or 8 minutes) to collect points.
Target hitting, throwing, teamwork spatial awareness
Repeat the game more than once in a shorter time (e.g. 2-3 minutes) and try to improve “best hit totals” each game. Change partners and repeat the game.
