Scoring Potential: 0 Points (Normal)
1 Point (Above Shoulder Height)

Key Tips:

• Try catching the ring so your arm ends straight down by your side so it’s extended the lowest you can.

• Match the motion of the ring as it falls.

• Loft the ring using mostly your body and legs for power. Think power from the ground.

• This trick can be repeated rhythmically to establish a continuous flow.

• Try catching on your finger tips to hone your grip.

• Find an infinity crossover by tossing the ring to the other side hand. With one flow repeat the crossover loft back to the original had to complete the infinity.
