Scouts create two parallel lines about 5 feet apart, facing each other.
First scout in one line has the ball.
He throws the ball to the first in the other line, then runs behind his line to the end of it.
Each scout does the same thing.
There are many ways to play:
- Have each patrol divide into two lines. Define a start and finish line. The first patrol to move their entire group across the finish line by throwing the ball is the winner.
- When an patrol drops the ball, they are out. See which patrol can go the longest while a leader ensures they are moving farther and farther apart.
- Have everyone create just two lines. Time how long it takes to get the ball back to the first scout. Try to better the group's time.
- Use two or three different sized balls all going at once.
