QuickStart for 7-8 Year Olds: Slamma Jamma
The coach places spots or throw down lines every 5-6 feet inside the doubles alley. Players stand on either side of the alley facing each other. Players side shuffle from the net to the baseline tossing underhand to a partner with a foam ball or beach ball. The ball must bounce between the players before the partner can catch it. The goal is to move from the net to the baseline without dropping the catch. Every time a player drops the ball, they quickly go back to the nearest spot or throw down line before continuing on. To increase the difficulty, have the players catch the ball in the air without it bouncing.
