All participants form two lines opposite each other. In these lines, participants stand behind each other, being sure to give the person at the front of the line room to pivot and throw. The participant at the front of line A is the first thrower. The front of line B is the first receiver. A defender C applies a straight up force to A.


B > A > C > back of line

  • Caroline Ma says:

    Towards the end, stall count could be lowered to increase the pressure.

    In principal, allow receivers to take one step or a jump to make a catch though your discretion may be required for what is considered a completion or not.

    This can be very brutal for the first few people eliminated - smaller groups could be a way to mitigate this.
