  • 1 ball per group
  • Marker cones
  • 1 glove per player (optional)


  1. Divide your players into groups of 5; each player stands at a marker cone placed in lines 8 metres apart.
  2. The player at the end marker for each group starts by throwing a ball up the line so each team member catches and then throws to the next player, finally reaching the other end.
  3. Once the end player catches the ball, they run down the line to the front marker and each team member moves down 1 position.
  4. This activity ends when the player who started the activity is back at their original position.

Change It...

  • Use different types of throws; rolling or fly balls
  • Larger balls, shorter distance
  • Smaller balls, use gloves, increase the distance; timed activity


  • What do we need to do to get the ball down the line faster?
