Purpose: Perform the underarm throw fielding skill under the pressure of a race between two teams.
Description: The player at position 1 runs and underarms all three balls to position 2. She then runs to position 2. As soon as the last ball is caught, player 2 runs and replaces all the balls before running to position 1 to tag the next player. Once the player at position 1 is tagged she performs the same underarm throws to the player who has taken up position 2.
The first team to complete the relay wins.
Variations: You can make it more difficult by making a player who fumbles go again.
