From a standing position on the platform, a team member falls into the arms of 8 teammates. It sounds simple, but it is one of the most mentally challenging elements we have... so much so that only High School and above may do it. Try it with a Catch net.

The task is to get each and ever member of the team up and through the tire. Team members can only help members on their side (that is, those who made it over can't help others go up on the up side and those who haven't made it over can't help those coming down on the down side).

And who knows what kind of restrictions the facilitator might impose on the group, or on those who end up touching the ground?
