Lilypad Dodgeball

Heading 1

-Objective:

Heading 1

For throwers hitting other players with the ball so that they join the throwing team (from a seated position)

-Fundamental Movement Skills:

  • Locomotor

  • Dodge

  • Run

-Equipment List:

  • For every 10 players have about three ITs

  • Each It gets one hula hoop and one soft ball--I like the oversized tennis balls the best as they travel well and do not hurt when a player is hit.

  • About one oversized tennis ball for each player.

-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Players have a start line and an end line (for safety sake ensure the lines are at least 3-5 paces from any wall).

  • The throwers spread out in the playing area and stand in their hoop and hold a ball.

-Instructions:

  • On the throwers signal to begin, the runners attempt to run across the playing area without getting hit by a ball.

  • If players are hit by a ball they sit down at the spot they were hit.

  • Once all players have crossed to the other side, the leader gives the hit players a ball. Throwers retrieve their balls.

  • Continue play back-and-forth till there is only one (or no runners) left.

  • Play again with new throwers beginning.

Queestions

-Questions & Notes:

  • Variation

  • Play mini games with one or two players as throwers and five to ten players running.

  • Give throwers more than one ball (perhaps two or three)
