Passing Pattern: 3-count Accommodation

3-count Accommodation

For 4 passers and 12 clubs


This is a way to 'accommodate' jugglers who cannot do PPS-type patterns with those who do. It is for four passers. There are four roles, and all feed two people. One person does a 3-count, another does a 1-2-count, and the others do 2-counts (one left-handed, the other right-handed), but they favor one feedee (the 1-2-count feedee) over the other. Only a pair of jugglers is passing at any one beat, and there is a pair of passes on every beat.


How to Do It



A feeds C and D in a 3-count.  B feeds C and D in 2-out-of-3, doing self D C self C D.

C passes right-handed in a 2-count, doing A s B s B s.  D passes in a 2-count, left-handed, s B s A s B.

Other Comments

This pattern can be flipped and rotated any number of ways after each six beats.

One can also line up like so:


 C  D

This makes everyone's role harder -- even A's. If you want to see the 'traditional' arrangement, use 3countaccommrun.pass as the runaround file in JoePass!
