Hidden Mission

Heading 1

-Objective:

Heading 1

Be the first team to knock down the opponent’s targets.

-Fundamental Movement Skills:

  • Manipulative Send

    • Throw

-Equipment List:

  • 1 volleyball net

  • 1 hidden mission tarp

  • 24 targets

  • 24 balls

-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Place the tarp over the net so players cannot see the other side.

  • Team's are in a scattered position on either side of the net.

  • Each team places their targets, about 15-30 centimetres apart, inside the court boundaries in a solid line (straight, jagged, curvy...)

  • Each team is given 12 balls.

-Instructions:

  • On the leader's signal to begin players toss balls over the net in an attempt to knock over the other team's targets. When a target is hit it is removed from the playing area.

  • If a player inadvertently knocks over one of their own targets it is removed from the playing area.

  • If players are hit by a ball, when they are purposefully blocking the throw (determined by leader), that team removes one of their targets.

  • Defense can only catch a ball after it has bounced on the ground at least once.

Queestions

-Questions & Notes:

  • Variations:

    • One Spy: One player from each team stands at the edge of the court to help their team hit the other team's targets.

    • Only Own Balls: Players can only use their team's coloured balls. When a ball is thrown player's from that team can go around the net, pick up their team's ball, carry it back to their own side, and resume play with that ball. This version gives players a useful opportunity to see where the targets are.

    • Scattered: Feams can place their targets randomly around the playing area. The targets do not need to be in any line. Team's might need a spy at the side of the net to help with locating the targets.

    • Roll Under: Lift the tarp about 20cm off the ground and students roll the balls under the net in an effort to knock down their opponent's targets.

  • Questions:

    • Offensively what are helpful strategies to hit the targets?

    • Defensively what are helpful strategies to make it difficult for the other team to knock down your targets?
