Toss Ball

Category: BALL GAMES

_10 to 60 players._


_Gas ball; bean bag._

This game should be played with a light gas ball or a bean bag, which
the teacher holds, standing in the front of the room. All of the
players are seated. The teacher throws the ball suddenly in any
direction at any player, who must stand at once to catch the ball and
immediately toss it back to the teacher. A player failing to catch the
ball, or catching it without standing, has one point counted against
him. Any player having failed in this way three times is out of the
game and must take his place at one side of the room set apart for
that purpose. As the game progresses, one outside row of seats or the
rear row across the room may be reserved for the players out of the
game, other rows being added as needed.

This game may also be played with a pupil tossing the ball instead of
the teacher. Any player failing to catch the ball, or catching it
while seated, changes places with the thrower instead of being out of
the game, as when the teacher throws. The thrower stands always in the
front of the room. Both methods make a good game.

A large part of the interest of this game lies in the rapidity of the
play and the unexpectedness with which the ball is thrown in any given
