Description

Participants must move the ball between two concentric circles in order to reach an objective.

Objective

Cooperate to achieve the goal (make turns quickly, touch the person with the ball, keep the ball out of the person’s reach).

How the game is played

Place the participants in two concentric circles about 1.5 meters apart. The participants in the inner circle should be facing outward, and the participants in the outer circle should be facing inward. In other words, the participants in the two circles should be facing each other, and a ball should be able to move between the circles.

START YOUR ENGINES

At the activity leader’s signal, participants must (using only their hands) move the ball around the track as quickly as possible. Once the game is understood, record how long it takes the group to complete 2, 3, 5 and then 10 laps.

INDIANA JONES

Ask for a volunteer to stand between the circles opposite the ball at the beginning of the game. When the game starts, the volunteer must run away to avoid being touched by the ball. Do not change the direction of the ball, and count how long the volunteer can run before the ball touches him/her. The goal of the other participants is to get the volunteer touched by the ball.

PLANET CHASER

Have a volunteer stand between the circles opposite the ball at the beginning of the game. When the game begins, the volunteer should try to touch the ball with both hands simultaneously. The volunteer can change direction as often as he or she wants, so the other participants must work together to keep the ball out of reach.

Adaptations/variations

Possibility to do it in a relay race (Indiana Jones and Planet Chase), to use only one hand, to be positioned from the side or the back (Start your engines).
