Indirect object pronoun

In this sentence:  "Les lazo la pelota y deben apagarla con las dos manos."  

I throw you the ball, and you must stop it with two hands.

I don't understand the use of 'Les" is it referring to 'you"?

Hola Lia

In this case, "Les" is used as the indirect object pronoun representing "ustedes" (you all plural in a formal way), indicating that the action is directed toward a group of people.

Saludos
