Purpose: To practice close catching technique under pressure.
Description: This is a competitive game between two or more teams of any number of players.
Player 1 is the feeder and throws the ball to each player in his team for a close catch. Once each player has caught the ball and returned it cleanly, player 1 runs to the position of player 2. All the other players move along one place so player 4 is now the feeder.
If a player drops the ball the catch must be thrown to him again until he catches it. The first team to complete a round and return to their original positions are the winners.
