· THROW AND CATCH - Organize the class into groups of three students. One person becomes the thrower, one the receiver, and one the observer. The thrower executes a lead pass using an overhand throwing technique to the moving receiver. The observer uses a task checklist to evaluate the throwing technique. The observer looks at one item on the checklist on each attempt and rates each as follows: 1 = Infrequently; 2 = Often; or 3 = Every Time. Students then change roles.
Variation: Using a three vs. one formation, adapt the activity for soccer, basketball, or hockey.
