Scooter Hockey


 

Scooter Hockey
 

State Standard: 1, 3

Equipment:  One scooter per player except the goalies, 4 cones, 2 plastic pucks, one scooter hockey stick per player, 2 goalie masks, gym tape Grade: 4-5 (possibly 3rd)
Purpose of Event: Manipulation, Control, Team Play
Organization: Form two equal teams with each team starting in its half of the gym.  Students should be sitting on their scooters with one team having red sticks and the other yellow sticks.  Use two cones, spaced 10 feet apart, to mark out a goal area at each end of the gym. One player from each team is the goalie.  The goalie does not need a scooter. Form a goalie box directly in front of the goal to protect the goalie. Use gym tape to create the box, which should be 10 feet wide and 10 feet deep.  Place the pucks in the middle of the play area between the two opposing teams.

Scooter Hockey:

  1. The object of the game is to shoot the puck between the opposition’s goal to score. Adding another puck will create more activity.
  2. On the signal the teams begin play by facing off in the center area.  The face-off is repeated after every goal.
  3. Penalties: The following penalties are punishable by moving to the penalty box.  (designated area)
  • The Pucks may not be touched with the free hand, excluding the goalie.
  • Rough Play
  • Falling off scooter
  • Causing a puck to become air borne, including the goalie.
  • Moving into the goalies protective box.
  1. Play should begin with one player from each team in the penalty box.  As a penalty occurs the penalized player should carry their scooter over to the penalty box and exchange positions with the player in the penalty box.
Concerns:  Must be able to move in general space safely and while on the scooters. Be careful when trying to strike the hockey puck that nobody is around the shooter.

Scooter Soccer


 

Scooter Soccer
 

State Standard: 1, 2, & 4

Equipment:  2 large Exercise Balls, Several Scooters, Colored Jersey’s, and cones.  Grade: 3-5
Purpose of Event: Practice the skills of soccer (kicking, passing, and teamwork) in a modified scooter activity. 
Time: 15-20 minutes
Organization: 

Split students into four equal teams. I have a double gym (which helps). Put the curtain down to split the gym into two separte courts. Give each student a scooter.

Description:
The will be two teams playing each other on one side of the gym while the other two teams will be playing on their court (other side of gym). Each team member has a scooter. The students objective is to kick the ball (Fitness Balls) against the mat on each end to score points. After a couple minutes switch teams. I do not have any goalies in this game. All students are scorers and defenders. Students are NOT allowed to use their hands at any point. 

Rules:

The players can only use their feet to kick the ball. If they use their hands the ball is awarded to the other team and that player has to sit in the penalty box. Students MUST stay on their scooter (bottoms). If student is chronically falling of their scooter they will be sent to the penalty box (designated area in the gym) for a few minutes. 

Concerns: Students falling of their scooters. Scooters being run into one another (pinching fingers) and making sure the ball does not hit anyone. 
This idea is from: I have seen many versions of this game, but I have modified it for my students and the space I have. 

 

Scooter Scramble

Scooter Scramble

State Standard: 1, 2, & 4

EquipmentOne scooter per student, four different colored jerseys, four garbage cans marked with one colored jersey, unlimited equipment (balls, beanbags, etc.) Grade: K-2
Purpose of Event: To demonstrate scooter safety and cooperative skills using group challenges.
Time: 20-25 minutes
Organization:  Place four laundry baskets in the corners of the gym. Have different colored jersey’s placed on each to represent the color for each team. Divide students into four teams. Give each team one scooter. The four laundry baskets and other equipment is scattered throughout the gym.

Scooter Scramble:  The challenge is for each team to scramble using their scooter, collect equipment (only one at a time), and place the equipment in their laundry baskets marked with their colored jersey. Members must stay on their scooters. When no equipment is left, teams count the equipment they collected in their laundry basket.

Equipment is scattered again. The new challenge is to collect more equipment than previously.

Variations: Change team members by switching jerseys. Identify only certain equipment to collect (only beanbags, only balls, only red equipment, etc.)

Concerns: Remind students about the importance of scooter safety.
