PE Games – Crazy Ball Soccer

November 3, 2019

This is crazy ball soccer. It is a very simple
idea that can be used throughout the grades. You will need some soft or foam balls, a
bunch of different kinds, or three different kinds. What you are going to do is you will have your nets and form your teams and instead of just starting with one soccer ball (which you can use a dodge ball or foam soccer ball or whatever you have) you add in something like a foam dice,
and a Nerf football, or whatever kind of soft, safe, balls that you can use
for the students. And you play and just have them go at it, all three of them going
at once. The thing about crazy ball soccer is with the dice for example, or football, it bounces
all over the place and makes it really tough for the kids to time and they have a lot
of fun playing it! What I do, is if a goal is scored, they just play on. The goalie
can throw the ball out of the net or whatever. I usually put in a rule that if the goalie gets scored on then they have to switch with somebody else, and the game just
goes on and on. Put some music with it and it usually goes really good!
That’s it for this game!

    I've done something like this before. We used one of those swiss balls (really big inflatable ones). They come in different sizes, so you may need to think about which size for which kids, but when they are trying to score with a ball half their size, it's quite fun.

    So are you trying to score with all three of those objects (the dice, soccer ball, and nerf ball)? and can you pick up the other balls and throw it into the net? or is it strictly kicking it into the net?
