    Lacrosse Shooting Stars
    Split the class into multiple teams in the gym. Each team will have one ball and one lacrosse stick. Set out lots of poly dots all over the floor and different distances to a basketball hoop. Students are to move to the poly dot and using the lacrosse stick throw the ball to the hoop. If the ball touches the backboard, rim, or net they get to take the spot back to their team. Make the different colors be worth varying amounts of points.
    Receiver Rescue
    Split the class into two teams. Everyone has a stick and put lots of soft balls (3 inch gator balls) all over the floor. Each team chooses two students to act as the teams starting throwers. They start on their side of the gym and everyone else on their team starts in their jail. Throwers toss the balls to their teammates. If a teammate catches a throwers ball then they get to join the thrower on their side. They can throw and get more teammates out of jail or they can defend the other teams jail. We added a second way to get out of jail and that it for the people in jail to throw a ball to the throwers and if it is caught they can get out of jail. If anyone intercepts a pass from the other team, the thrower is sent back to jail.
    4 Team or 6 Team Lacrosse
    Setup six big boxes in the corners of the gym. Inside each box place at least 3 bowling pins. No goalies are allowed and each team starts with a couple of small gator balls. Students try to move around the gym and knock over the other teams bowling pins. If they knock over a pin they get to grab it and bring it back to their square. Teams can only shoot at a goal once before moving on to another goal. Students are not allowed to move with a ball in their basket.
    Continuos Pin Lacrosse
    Setup 15 poly dots on each side of the gym. Place 8 bowling pins on 8 of the dots. Separate the class into two teams. Students have to stay on their side of the court and throw the gator balls using the lacrosse stick. If they knock over a bowling pin then they get to retrieve that pin and place it on one of their empty poly dots. Their goal is to fill up all of their poly dots before the other team.

    Pickleball Battleship
    Setup 4 teams with rackets and lots of nerfy small balls. I use lollipop paddles for the younger students. Make 4 squares with cones in the gym and give each team a square to work in. Set up a rubber poly dot with one bowling pin, a tub with two bowling pins, and a folded mat with 3 bowling pins. Goal is to knock off the bowling pins with the nerf ball. If they knock one down they get to go grab it and add it to their ships. Defense of the ships is allowed.
    4 Square badminton
    Setup 4 square and a team in each square. Set out a mat (I unfolded mine to make a square). Students are to hit the birdies onto the mat. If a team gets 5 birdies on their mat they are moved down to the bottom square. Goal is to get to the top square and stay there. Defense is fine as long as the team stays off the mat.

    Oscar's Garbage Can- (see throwing skills) with volleyball hits
    Volleyball Catch- A good way for younger classes to learn how to rotate and work as a team. Place on each side of the net just like a traditional way of playing volleyball. Instead of requiring bumps and sets..students are able to catch the volleyball when it comes over and use a volleyball hit to send it back over the net. They may still use the 3 hits per side and rotate when they get the serve back. Good for 3rd grade...possibly 2nd grade.

    ...
    Play with a three strike rule. If a team makes three mistakes then they go back to the first square or become the waiting team. We also changed the serving rule. The serving square starts each round. But the team that gets a strike is the team that gets to serve the next ball. I don't have students rotate in their squares, but I ask them to move around to different spots when they move up to a new square.
    Keep it Up - Grade level: 2 and up. Equipment: one ball or balloon for every group of four to six students. The game: See how long your group can keep the ball or the balloon in the air, or count consecutive taps. No one may tap the ball twice in a row.Variation: Everyone must tap the ball once before anyone can tap it again. Safety: Tap softly. Use the verbal cue "tap", instead of "hit." Try to stay in your own area. Variation: Play one group against another. See which group can keep the ball up the longest. Variation: Give each group two or three pieces of equipment. Time each round for 30 seconds. If successful with one ball, try two the next round. If successful with two, try three.
    Volleyball Steal the Bacon - Grade level: 3 and up. Equipment: two volleyballs, trainers or beach balls and two hoops or upside down scooters to hold the volleyballs for each group of six to ten players. The game: The game is played like "Steal the Bacon," except that it is played in small groups with less running. One student becomes the leader in each group. This position should be rotated after each game. Every two students get the same number and line up opposite each other or diagonally across from each other. When the leader calls the number, the two students come out pickup a ball and do one of the following:
    Forearm pass it to each group member
    Overhand pass it to each group member
    Serve it to each group member
    The team completing the passes first receives one point.
    Three - Four - Five Student Shuttle - Grade level: kg and up. Equipment: one volleyball (any kind) for every three to five students. For younger students, use balloons or beach balls. The game: Two students line up facing one student. The first student who is on the line of two holds the ball. S/he uses a volleyball pass to the student standing by himself/herself. Immediately after passing the ball, s/he runs to where the ball was passed and goes to the end of the line. After each pass, the passer runs to the other side. The object of the game is complete as many successful consecutive passes as possible in a given amount of time. A successful pass is defined as one that is self set by the passer and caught on the fly by the catcher. If the group has four students, two students face the other two. If the group has five students, three students face two. The team of three begins with the ball. Time each round for two to three minutes. Variation: Change the distances between players depending on skill level, change the kind of pass, and/or change the kind of ball. Variation: More advanced students can set and/or bump the ball continuously without catching the ball. Safety: Make passes soft enough for the partners to catch.

    Bump, Set, and Serve
    Out students together into teams or three or four. Put out a large box of bean bags. Hang a hula hoop from each of the basketball hoops. Have students take the team volleyball to a hoop and bump, set, or serve through the hula hoop for one bean bag or into the basketball hoop for two bean bags. One hit and then get the volleyball back to the next person in line.
    ...
    Setup a mat with the fold up in air so that when kids are on knees they have a net about shoulder height in front of them. Have students rally a balloon over the mat net.
    Setup a volleyball net and have students hit a beach ball over the net. Reinforce that they are rallying to see how many hits they can get in a row and not trying to beat the other team.

    Hang a hula hoop from the basketball hoop. Have students bump, set, and serve to try to get the ball through the hula hoop. Or give them double points for bumping, setting, and serving into the basketball hoop.

    Any Ball
    This is a sort of ultimate ball game. You can use any type of item to throw that you would like. Changing the object makes the students change their strategies. Each team has one goalie who has a foot in their hula hoop and another hula hoop in their hand. One team starts with the object and passes it to teammates. Students can not move when they have the object in their hands. Student try to move that object up to the goalie as to throw it through the hoop. If the object is dropped or hits the ground the other teams picks it up and starts going their direction with it.
    Aerobic Ball
    Spilt the class into two teams. Place rubber dots at the end lines of each team. Place 8 bowling pins on the 16 rubber dots. Do the same thing for the other team. Students are to throw gator balls at the bowling pins and if they got knocked over they get to take that pin back to their team. When they get a pin they add it to the empty spots on their side. The goal of the team is to fill all of the empty rubber spots.
