  • Physical Education/Team Sports

Duration: Two 15 – 20 minute halves Description: Combo of soccer and basketball: Using a soccer ball inside, set up goals as if playing soccer. Students are to only kick ball to team-mates. Two ways to score: 1) kick through goal, 2) shoot basket. You play the game like soccer and can score a goal as in soccer. However, if a student either lifts the ball to self or kicks ball to team-mate, hands can be used to catch ball and attempt to shoot. Realistically, a ball can be caught anywhere on the court at any time, however, once caught, ball must be shot at basket. If missed shot, team-mates can rebound if ball touches rim only, if not, must play with feet. If attempting to catch ball but fail, hands is called and defending team gets ball. Can use a direct or indirect kick. Hands close to the goal brings ball to top of key (safety). 1 point for kicked goal, 2 points for basket.
