Three Flies Up

Also known as “Three Flights Up”, this is a great game to teach catching skills in baseball. Can also be played with a handball or football or any other kind of ball that you don’t need too much equipment to catch.

Equipment: one tennis ball, at least 5 players

Area: a full basketball court-sized area

Object: To be the person who has caught the ball three times

How to Play: One person is chosen to throw the ball. Everyone else stands at the other end of the field or area and gets ready to catch the ball. The thrower tosses the ball high up into the air and the rest of the group tries to catch it. When a person catches the ball they throw it back to the thrower. Play continues until one person has caught the ball three times. When that happens, that person becomes the thrower.
