Setup and Equipment
- About twenty foam balls
- About 15 foam targets
- Form two lines next to each other to enter the game. One line is offense, the other line is defense. (Use cones to designate).
- One player from the offensive line enters the game with their defensive partner.
- The defensive partner picks up a foam target and sets in down on a a spot. They will be trying to protect their team’s target.
- The offensive partner picks up a foam soccer ball. They will be moving anywhere in the gym in an attempt to know over other targets.
- Have 3 or 4 people in the “next in line ” to start the game.
- Students spread the targets are at least 3-4 feet per player. No placing them in a corner or against a wall.
- Using polyspots or floor markings to designate placement of the targets will help spread the game out and encourage individual play.
- Play begins…
- The object of the game is for the defensive player on each team to block any shots at their target.
- The offensive partner will be moving around the gym and attempt to knock over other targets by using soccer skills, while kicking ball. keep your target up while knocking other targets over.
- When a foam target is knocked down -the defensive player should tell their offensive partner that they are out. Then they bring their target to the line and hand it to the next person in the defensive line.
- Now the players will switch their roles in the game. The defensive player goes to the end of the offensive line, while the offensive player will now go to the end of the defensive line.
- Players always switch from offense to defense after each turn.
- Game continues for as long as time permits.
