    For larger groups, I have them divide into smaller teams and use one item (a heavier item with some distance capabilities. tennis balls work great!) per group to create their passing sequence. while they are out creating their sequence, I form a large circle with poly spots, one for each player. When small groups are ready to reconvene, I have everyone stand on a poly spot (not near their group… maybe… depending on your own approach and what the goals are and such?). I then remind them that they have previously come up with and practiced a sequence for passing, “and now we are all going to go through our sequences together at the same time. As soon as you pass the ball to the next person in the sequence, please move from your current poly spot and move to the next open spot. when your group has ‘successfully’ passed it three rounds, please cheer loudly!” (or support the rest of your team, or join the dance party in the middle of the circle, or continue to move to other poly spots as you notice they are becoming available).
