- Outcome A (10-30)-10
Groups of nine work best. No teams are required
as each student keeps their own points.
Players stand around the basketball key as shown
below. Ideally, the game should continue until all the players have
had a chance to rotate through all the positions.
How to Play
- The player in position
#4 begins with a foul shot. If he/she makes the shot they get
a point and shoot again.
- When the shot is missed,
the other players positioned around the key (1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7)
try to rebound the ball.
- Whoever gets it, and
the person directly across from them become a team and play 2
on 1 against the person in position #4 who has now moved down
the floor to defend the other hoop.
- If the rebound players
score they each get a point. If the defender prevents the 2 on
1 from scoring, no points are gained. Only one shot can be taken.
- Now the defender and
the two rebounders from the 2 on 1 game become one team and bring
the ball back down the floor to play in a 3 on 2 game.
- The two players who
were under the hoop (#8 and #9), come out on the court to defend,
while the other players have cleared off to the end line.
- If the offense scores
they each get a point and if the defense scores no points are
- The players now move
up one position, going clockwise from where they were. (For example,
#9 moves to position 1, #1 to position 2, #2 to position 3, #3
to position 4, #4 to position 5, and so on.)
- The game begins again.
In a large class, place four along each side of

Make the foul shots worth two points instead of
Play games for a set time period and then switch
the top point earners to one court for more of a challenge.
Run two games and have the students decide whether
to play on the competitive side or the recreational side.
Points made by students who are on the school
basketball team are worth one each time. Other players get two points
each time they score.
