-Setting Up:

  • Place Kickpar goals at challenging positions in a course so players can easily follow from one hole to the next.

  • Each player is given a ball--if you do not have sufficient number of balls then partner players up and they can take turns kicking the ball.

  • Players are distributed throughout the course so that there is no waiting at the first hole.

-Instructions:

  • On the leader's signal to begin players kick the ball towards the target.

  • When the ball is in the target players tally up the number of kicks it took to get the ball into the target.

  • Players attempt to go through the course and score the lowest number of kicks.

-Questions & Notes:

  • Variation:

  • Speed Kickpar: Players attempt to complete the course in a set time period and keep track of the number of kicks/touches it took to complete the course. Add a touch for every 15 seconds later than established time. 

  • Questions for Understanding:

  • Technically, what is the most accurate way of kicking a ball?

  • If playing the speed variation, how does speed affect accuracy?

  • How do you deal with success and failure?
