Square Ball Pin Guard


Square Ball Pin Guard

State Standard: 1, 2, 3, & 5

Equipment: One ball and pin per group of 5, 4 square area for each group
Grade: 4+
Purpose of Event: Work on Throwing, Aiming, Team work

In groups of 5, chose 1 to be a goalie, they will stand in the middle of the square and guard the pin, the remaining 4 players will stand, one on each side of the square. The objective is to pass the ball to each other until one player has a clear shot at the goal…the pin in the middle. The goalie moves around inside the square attempting to protect the goal by blocking or catching any attempt the outside players make to throw and hit the goal (pin). Outside players each earn a point if the goal is hit. Play for a designated time (2-3 minutes) and rotate positions so all players have an opportunity to play goalie.

Could also have the player that hit the pin down, replace the goalie.

Concerns: Keep throws low, and use a soft ball
