        1. Hot Potato Drill –

          squads one and two form circle, squads 3&4 same. Four balls in each circle. When you throw to someone you must call out their name. Circle gets a point for catch. Then teams will go again but this time they will lose a point for every drop.

          1. Reinforce cues through Q&A;

          2. Preview next class
