is simple and versatile enough to be used for casual, simple games as well
as intensely competitive sports.
This information is designed for physical education
teachers, special event directors or anyone introducing the FlingSock to a group.
We will suggest a progression of success-oriented games and activities that
allow people to become confident in their ability with no embarrassment
Youll need 1 FlingSock for every 2 people so everyone is actively participating
right from the start. Some games work even better with a FlingSock for everyone.
1. Demonstrate how to hold the FlingSock loosely by the handle.
2. Swing it once or twice underhand and let go.
3. Show how the beanbag is soft and sinks securely into your hands.
4. Suggest 2 handed catches to start.
-People pick a partner
-Form 2 long lines about 10 yards apart with partners facing each other between the lines.
-Play catch in this format for awhile with people catching it by the bean bag.

People can throw the FlingSock so easily they normally tend to get too far apart before
theyve become accustomed to throwing and catching consistently. This activity
keeps partners close together for awhile and gives the facilitator a chance
to make suggestions to individuals or the entire group. Make line long enough
so people arent crowded together. Challenge players to improve consistency.
