Name Ball

A game to introduce Scouts to one another.




Scouts gather round in a circle. The leader in charge then throws the ball to someone. The Scout must remember who threw the ball to them, and who they threw the ball to. One they have had the ball once they step back, so all the other scouts can get the ball. Scout must only get the ball once. Once all scouts have had a go, the last Scout to have the ball throws it to the leader in charge. This is the order that the ball must be thrown round in. They must communicate with everyone else to get the ball successfully round, without anyone dropping it. If someone drops it, the whole group must start over again. The goal is to get all the balls going round at the same time! If they do this, you can make it harder by having a ball they must pass clockwise, and a ball they must pass counter-clockwise.
