Ball Scatter

Students 2 groups of 6

Equipment 6 balls of various sizes, 1 hoop and 5 marker cones per 2 groups

Area Large open space


Place marker cones in a zig-zag shape and put the balls in the hoop at the start of the zig-zag. A student from group 1 throws all the balls out of the hoop and runs a zig-zag course touching the top of each marker cone. They continue up and down as many times as possible in the time that it takes for group 2, the fielding side, to return the balls to the hoop. Group 1 scores 1 point for each marker cone touched. Groups change.


Fielders may be asked to sit or take a different position (eg. sitting, crouching etc.) on the ground before the balls are thrown.
