Pass and Catch

Number of Participants Required: 2+
Equipment Needed: 1 ball per pair of children
Time: 5+

How to Play:

  • Group participants into pairs
  • Have children pass the ball back and forth
  • Once skill is mastered have participants move around the gym and pass to their partners
  • Start in small groups (2) and slowly make the groups bigger


  • Lighter (foam) balls travel at a slower pace and require less force
  • Larger balls require less accuracy
  • The closer together the participants are the easier the pass will be to pass/catch
