Divide the kids into two teams, even numbers of guys and girls on both team work best!
Make one team pinnies and one not.
Set up goals by putting a line of masking take to make a large rectangle end zone at least 4 feet deep and the length of the playing area and have the ball held in the middle by a leader.
The game is started by two people from each team coming into the center and the leader throwing the ball in the air, much like in basket ball, the players hit the ball and whoever picks it up starts the game, but often someone catches it.
The goal of the game is to pass the ball from team member to team member to try and make a goal. The ball cannot touch the ground or it goes to the other team. When a team member catches the ball, they cannot move, they have to stand where they are and pass it to another person. Kids can run around and move if they don't have the ball. A goal is made by the team if someone on the team catches the ball in the end zone.
Guys get really into this game, and sometimes overlook the girls playing even if they are open. So it is good to encourage them to throw the ball to the girls.
The game can end at any time, when a goal is made, the game starts in the center and points are added up. If you have a certain amount of time, it is good cause you can end the game at any time, and whatever the standing score is determines who wins.
