 The box is a synchronous pattern with a shape resembling a box. In a 3 ball box, two balls go straight up and down on the sides, and the other is thrown back and forth horizontally at the bottom of the pattern. In siteswap notation, the 3 ball box is (4,2x)*.

Each time you throw, you throw two balls: The right hand throws a ball straight up, and the left hand throws another ball straight across into the right hand. Then the same throws are repeated on the other side, with the left hand throwing straight up and the right hand throwing straight across.

Box patterns with higher numbersEdit

2 high 2 low box - the easiest kind of box pattern for even numbers

Aa2x2x box 200

(6,6)(2x,2x), (a,a)(2x,2x)

Sprung patterns

Sprung 3 200

(4,2x)*, (6x,2x)*, (8,2x)*

Sprung 4 200

The 3 ball box is a sprung 2 ball fountain. Sprung fountain patterns with higher numbers also have a box-like shape, but sprung cascades don't.

Synch pseudoshowers

64x 200

The siteswaps (6,4x)* and (8,6x)* are analogous to the 3 ball pattern (4,2x)*, but they don't have a box shape.

Siteswap exercisesEdit

You can use these exercises to practice the same kinds of throws and sequences of throws that are done in box patterns, 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.
