  • 1 ball per pair


  1. Divide your players into 2 even groups.
  2. The group line up approximately 4 metres apart and facing one another. Players facing each other become a pair and work together.
  3. The coach decides which is done first – roll or throw and decides which games to play first, eg first to 10 or how many are completed in a set time.
  4. When deciding, players roll ground balls to each other making sure not to fumble; or throw a ball to each other making sure they don’t drop it.
