Passing the ball is a coordination game for groups of 10 or more players.


  • one ball (soccer ball, volley ball, etc.)
  • a chair for each player


The players sitting in a circle on chairs. The circle should be rather tight. Their feet are stretched towards the middle of the circle, their hands are behind their backs.

One player gets the ball, that is put on his feet (or lap). The task of all players is to pass the ball around the circle. Of course, they may not use their hands for that! How fast can they do that, without dropping the ball on the floor? Be sure to try changing the direction!
