Requirements: A volleyball.

  1. Using a standard volleyball, participants lightly pass the ball to each other, counting each time the ball is volleyed.
  2. The ball is never caught, it is only hit by another person and kept in the air by everyone in the circle.
  3. See how high the count will get before the ball is dropped or missed.
  4. If someone misses, there is no shame, they yell happily “I failed” and everyone cheers and starts over.

TIP: This promotes the idea of cooperative play rather than competitive play.
