Type: Learning Activity

Overview:

This game was developed as an idea to incorporate large groups (multiple classes) in a smaller space when the weather doesn't permit us to go outside. This is a fast-moving game that allows players to work on throwing, catching, and shooting skills as well as evading and defending tactics. The object of this game is to shoot balls into your opponents' goals while defending your own goal. Using teamwork and game strategy, the team will determine the best way to do this. Once a goal is filled up with the eight balls of its team's color, the round is over. At the end of each round, the number of all balls in each goal will be counted and recorded. At the end of class (5-6 rounds), the totals will be calculated to determine the winning team, the team with the FEWEST balls counted in its basket.

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
