end of the circle, approximately 15 yards apart.
Divide the circle into two
equal teams, assigning each player
a number. Each team will have
numbers that correspond to the opposing team.
To begin the game the instructor will call out three numbers, the
players representing these three numbers will enter the circle (there
should be three from each team). When
the instructor blows the whistle, the game begins.
The object of the game is to score a goal in the opposing teams
net. Players may not touch
the puck with their hands or feet. If
a player wishes to be goalie, it is legal, but even the goalie may not use
his hands. The players
forming the circle help keep the puck in the game.
The players inside the circle play until a goal is scored, or until
the instructor feels the players have used enough time.
Once these players are finished, they go back to their place in the
circle, and three new numbers will be called.
