Head & Catch Game

How to Play

In this game play, when the coach throws the ball and he yells "HEAD" or "CATCH" to the player he is tossing the ball to, the player has to instantly react to the coach’s command and perform accordingly. If the coach yells "HEAD" the player must head the ball. If the coach yells "CATCH" the player must catch the ball and return the ball to the coach. In case the player doesn’t perform well and does a wrong action, that player sits down and only standing players will play. The last player standing wins the round.
