Find the Space

How to play

  • Groups of five
  • Combine four grids into one large grid of 20m x 20m
  • One ball per group
  • The player with the ball attempts to touch as many players as possible with the ball
  • The other players work individually, running in any direction in the grid, trying to avoid being touched by running into space
  • When the teacher or coach calls “Stop!”, each player must be at least one metre from the nearest player
  • The ball carrier keeps count of the number of players touched
  • Work for one minute, then give the ball to a different player
