Change It...


  • Players throw or bounce the ball towards the target
  • Increase the size of the ball


  • Use a smaller target ball
  • Use a bigger playing area


  • Vary the speed of the roll
  • Use bean bags instead of balls to practise the pitching technique
  • Bouncing the target ball provides an interesting challenge


  • Make sure all players have thrown before the balls are collected
  • Signal when safe to do so.
