object of the game is for each team to be the first to knock down all of
their pins. Players are not
allowed to move from their own positions, except to retrieve a ball, this
should eliminate ball hogging. A
player may retrieve a ball from the middle, however they must dribble to
their home position prior to shooting.
If a player knocks down an opposing teams cone it stays down.
HELPFUL HINTS: When
the entire class understands the game we can make smaller teams and play
two games at one time. Emphasize
proper trapping and kicking techniques.
Players can be placed along the side to stop wild shots, but with
this method you will need to rotate players.
