How to Play:

  • Have all participants make a circle with their backs towards the middle of the circle
  • Participants pass the ball to the person sitting next to them – It is important to remember who they are sitting next to.
    • You can have children call the name of the person they are passing too
  • Instructor shouts out `break` and participants now move freely around the gym, however they still pass the ball to the person they were passing to before
  • Instructor can bring group back together at anytime


  • To make this activity more challenging additional balls can be used
