Over and Under


To pass a stability ball overhead and under the legs the most consecutive times in a set amount of time

-Fundamental Movement Skills:

  • Locomotor

    • Run

  • Manipulative Send

    • Give​

-Equipment List:

-Equipment Link:

  • One stability ball per 5-6 players

-Setting Up:

  • Players stand in a line with their groups, facing the backs of the players in front of them about one pace apart from each other.

  • Make sure there is enough distance behind the last player in line for someone to either go behind or stand to one side to have the group turn a corner when it gets too close to a wall.

  • Give the front player the ball.



  • On your signal to begin, the front player passes the ball back overhead to the second player in line. The front player then runs to the back of the line.

  • The second player puts the ball down on the ground and passes it under his legs to the next player in line.

  • Players alternate between passing the ball overhead and passing it under the legs before running to the back of the line.

  • The ball is passed to the end of the line, at which point the first player is behind the last player and the players continue to pass the ball back.

  • Have the groups count each successive time the ball goes past the first player.

  • Groups should keep track of the highest number of successive passes through the group during the allotted time (one or two minutes should be adequate).

-Questions & Notes:

  • Tips and Variations

    • Forward Over and Under:

      • Played the same as Over and Under except that players pass the ball forward instead of backward.

      • This version is more challenging because the player in front cannot as easily see the ball coming.
