Heading 1

To complete the circle running relay as quickly as possible.

-Fundamental Movement Skills:

    • Run​

-Equipment List:

  • None


-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Players (in teams of 5-7 players) stand in a circle with a diameter of at least 8 paces.


  • Player #1 runs completely around the circle and then tags player #2.

  • Player #1 takes #2's sport in the circle and #2 runs around and tags #3.

  • When all players in the circle complete their run the game is done.

  • Time the players to see how quickly they can do it, or have them compete against other circles to see who can be the first team done.

-Questions & Notes:

  • Variations:

    • Circle Weave: The same as Circle Relay except that players weave themselves in and out of the other players in the circle rather than running outside of them.     

    • Everyone Goes: Once P1 passes P2, P2 follows P1. When P2 passes P3, then P3 follows P2. Each player follows the player behind them. When players return to their spot they sit down to see which group did it the quickest.
