-Setting Up:

  • Players lay out their hula hoops on the other side of the court, just back of the attacke line and all hoops touching each other in a rectangle.

  • Players stand on the opposite side of the court from their hoops.

  • About two-third of the players hold a ball (balls evenly divided between the two teams)

-Instructions:

  • On the leader's signal to begin, players attempt to serve the balls over the net aiming to land them in one of the hula hoops on the other side of the net.

  • When a ball lands in a hoop that hoop is removed.

  • Keep playing till one team has removed all their hoops.

  • If a player blocks another team's served ball the other team can remove one of their hoops.

-Questions & Notes:

  • Variation:

  • Specify that the hula hoops need to be at least one step apart from each other. This will make hitting all the hoops more challenging.

  • Question for Understanding:

  • What techniques help a player serve accurately?
