-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Players are placed in teams of 3-5 players each lined up behind a starting line.

  • Place a whole pile (maybe 100) of pool noodles at the other end of the playing area.


  • On the leader's signal to begin, the first player from each team runs and picks up one pool noodle.

  • The first player returns to the starting line and gives the noodle to the next player in line. That player runs and picks up a second noodle.

  • Continue the above pattern till all the pool noodles are picked up.

  • Count which team has the most.

-Questions & Notes:

  • Question for Understanding:

  • In leadership situations where one has too much on their plate, what are some of the best ways to handle that?

  • Thanks to Robert Matheson from CIRA Ontario for first demonstrating this game to me.
