Kids Game of the Week: Ball Transfer
By Rob Noone
Each Team has 2 facilitators, 2 hoops, and 2 playground type balls. Teams line up relay style. Divide each team in half. Place the hoops opposite each other. The distance between hoops is optional, but should be the same for each competing team. Each facilitator has a ball and stands next to one of the hoops. On the “go” signal, the facilitator places the ball between the first two players on each line. Some choices include, but are not limited to, back to back, shoulder to shoulder or stomach to stomach. Each team must place the ball the same way. Once the ball is placed, each pair attempts to transfer the ball to the opposite hoop. Each team has two balls working at the same time. If the ball falls, pick it up and go back. After two tries go to the end of the line. If successful, the facilitator takes the ball, the pair goes to the end of the new line, play continues, and the entire team receives one point. If playing as individuals, the pair receives one point for each ball transfer. Play for as designated amount of time. Count all successful points.
