  • Physical Education/Team Sports


  • four to six frisbees
  • access to a basketball court

The class is divided into two teams. Team #1 stays on one half-court and the other team uses the other half-court. The object of the game is to throw the frisbees and try to hit the basketball backboard located on the opposite side of the court. Points are scored depending on what happens. Points are as follows:

  • 1 point – backboard hit outside the small square
  • 2 points – backboard hit inside the small square
  • 4 points – basket made off backboard (not easy)
  • 6 points – frisbee goes directly into basket [very hard to do]

Author Discussion: You can set your own points to win. I usually use 50 as the winning score unless the class is having a hard time — then I use 20 as the winning score. Instead of frisbees, you can use volleyballs, footballs, wiffle balls, or any other objects you have available as long as they do not present a safety hazard. This is an original game I made up. My classes like it a lot.
