Read this important safety note!
- Demonstrate how to catch it by the tail.
- Concentrate on grabbing right behind the bean
bag with a loose grip so the tail slides right through the hand until the
handle stops at your hand.
- Have people pair up again and go anywhere on
the field to practice catching it by the tail. They should stay 10-15 yards
apart for this learning stage.
Catching by the tail requires a little more technique
than catching by the bean bag but the unique way of catching is very satisfying.
The smooth transition from catch to throwing is unique to this sport and
with some practice allows for incredibly quick passes.
- Set up equal sized areas, a comfortable throwing
distance apart. The width can vary from 10-50 yards depending on the number
of players on each team.
- Score a point each time a Sock launched form
your territory lands in your opponents territory.
Win at 10 points.
- You must throw it from where you catch it or
where it lands. Throws must be underhand.
With multiple FlingSocks, you may want a score keeper for each team.
This game works well because the territories are
big enough that anyone can easily throw the FlingSock to land in the opponents territory. The entire team is
needed to spread out far enough to catch incoming FlingSocks.
Also, the size of the territories can be adjusted
according to the ability of the players. For instance, adults can play against
kids by making the adults territory larger. Dont make the territories
so large that many FlingSocks go uncaught. You want people to be catching it most of
the time so they feel successful.
