EQUIPMENT

PURPOSE

The object is to receive a ball inside one of your colored hoops with at least one foot inside the hoop.

HOW IT WORKS


Have students form teams of 3-4. This will make either a 3 on 3 game or a 4 on 4 game.

Offensive team must make at least 3 passes before attempting to pass to a teammate inside a hula hoop. No dribbling allowed, passing only.

Defensive team can intercept a ball but cannot steal the ball from hands of offence • Players have 3 seconds to pass the ball.

Ball out of bounds = turnover

Teams change offense and defense if there is a turnover or a successful pass to a hoop.

Students cannot ‘hang’ since a hoop for longer than 5-10 seconds.

MODIFY IT


Increase or decrease the amount of passes before passing to a hoop.

Have a dedicated ‘catcher’ who can float between hoops and gameplay.

Allow dribbling and stealing.

ASK STUDENTS


Which players are the safest to pass to?

If the defense is covering you, what can you do?
