This exercise to develop catching & passing skills challenges the players to work in a group


  • The players spread out around the playing area
  • One player is designated the ‘piggy in the middle’
  • The other players pass the ball around attempting to keep it away from the ‘piggy in the middle’
  • If the ball is dropped or intercepted the player who missed the catch or attempted the pass becomes the new ‘piggy in the middle’

Key Points

  • Ensure the players have enough room to perform the exercise safely


  • An inventory of equipment to support Have a Ball exercises is available in the Resources section
