Start by creating a “throwing pit” using the middle circle of the gym. Stand tumbling mats upright on their sides to form barriers at four locations around the gym to form a “hideout” from incoming balls. Choose a player to be the “thrower” — that player must throw from the inside of the center circle. The remaining students run in the same direction outside the perimeter of the mats, trying not to get hit. The catch is that they can only stay behind the mat for a count of three and then must make a run for the next “hideout.” Whenever a player is hit below the waist, they are out. The winners become the throwers next game.
