Firefighter Challenge



You tie a piece of rope to the rim on one of your basketball hoops.  You then take a track baton, and tape it to a large volleyball/beach ball, then string the rope through the baton and tie to the basketball hoop on the other end of the gym. Split your class into 2 teams, and use whatever type of ball you wish (yarn balls, small gator skin balls.) The students have to throw the balls at the beach ball, trying to get to cross a line on the floor for points. 

Taken from a contest that firefighters have were they put a barrel on a cable and then see which group of firefighters can get the barrel to the other side.

Idea from ==> Steve Kennedy. Physical Education Teacher, Anne Sullivan Elementary School, Sioux Falls, SD.
