Split the pack evenly in two and assemble one team in a circle and the other team in a line. A leader positioned in the middle of the circle throws a ball to each boy in turn and counts the number of consecutive catches made. If anyone drops the ball counting starts again from zero.
Meanwhile the team in a line runs ‘relay fashion’ around the circle and back to the line to tag the next player. This acts as a timer. Once all the cubs have run the teams swap over. The team with the highest number of consecutive catches wins.
Mark the teams by their final score when the running team has finished. This is more exciting since fortunes can change quickly.
