Tag Ball

Students 2 groups of 8-10

Equipment 4 marker cones, 1 basketball and 2 colour bands or bibs per 2 groups

Area Hard surface open space


Use marker cones to form the game area. 1 student from each group is designated as a target student. The object is to score by using the ball to tag the opponent’s target student. Basketball rules apply. Students may pass or bounce the ball while moving to touch the opponent’s target. If a student chooses to pass, they must bounce the ball first. The target students from one group may tag the other group’s target student. Following a score, the group scored against throws the ball back into play from the point where the score was made.


Restrict the target student to an area. The target student cannot run, but must walk or hop to avoid being tagged
