- Chair number one is in the left corner, 2,3, and 4 are around the outside in that order, and number 5 is the center chair.
- The player will start at chair number one and begin dribbling the basketball.
- He/she will dribble to each chair in numbered order, toss the tennis ball up in the air, and make any move (crossover, between the legs, behind the back, etc.), and then catch the tennis ball with the opposite hand that tossed it.
- Once the player reaches chair number 5, the coach/partner will start calling out the number of the next chair that the player must go to and make a move.
