-Setting Up:

  • Place a Sturtee tee, with a ball balanced atop, on either side of a playing area--could use the basketball key as a crease that noone can enter.

  • Divide approximately 8 to 14  players into two teams.

  • Players are in a scattered position in the playing area.

  • One player is given the ball.


  • On the signal to begin players attempt to make successful passes to their teammates.

  • Players with the ball can only pivot and not otherwise move with the ball.

  • If a ball is intercepted by the other team, or lands on the ground, the other team gets the ball.

  • When players throw the ball and knock the ball off the tee, their team scores a point and the other team gets the ball (after setting up the tee and ball again).

-Questions & Notes:

  • Questions for Understanding:

    • How can offensive teams most efficiently pass, catch, and advance the ball?

    • How can offensive teams most effectively get near the Sturtee?

    • How can defensive teams most effectively prevent the other team from completing their passes?

    • How can the defensive team most effectively prevent the other team from scoring by getting near the Sturtee?

  • Variation: Use a cone with a ball balanced atop it.
