 501 (also called the snowball trick) is a symmetrical 2 object siteswap with crossing throws. There is one object that is always thrown with the right hand, and one that is always thrown with the left hand. After the right hand throws the first object, it catches the second object and passes it across to the left hand before the first object is caught. Then the left hand throws the second object, catches the first object, and passes it back over to the right hand before the second object is caught, and the pattern repeats.

This is an excited state siteswap, starting in the state 101. You can either start the pattern with both objects held in one hand, or hold an object in each hand and make a crossing throw before starting the pattern with a 5 from the other hand:

Siteswap exercisesEdit

You can use these exercises to practice the same kinds of throws and sequences of throws that are done in this pattern, before you learn the full pattern.

Some of the siteswaps listed below are shortened to leave out parts where you’re not doing anything. Click on them to see animations of the exercises.

You should practice doing these starting with your right hand and with your left hand, so that you will be ready to learn the full symmetrical pattern.
