Create a competition to get to the line, with the attacker either using speed or evasive skills to beat a defender coming from a different angle. This easy to set up activity can be run as a breakout from games or as a large group in lots of boxes. Mix up the players so sometimes... MORE
Free the bees
Use this invasion game to improve defence, attacking running and some passing too.
- Put three bees in each hive
- Put two beekeepers 3m in front of the attackers
- One attacker comes forward to release the bees
- If the attacker makes it to a hive without being tagged, all the bees are released
- If the bees are released, the beekeepers try to tag them. If tagged they return to their hive again
- If the attacker is tagged, they try to pass to one of the bees. If a bee catches it, they return to the start to become an attacker
- Once the first attacker has tried, then release the next attacker
Cones, balls, tags.
HOW TO DO IT
- Put two or three players inside two small circles (bees in the beehive).
- Have two attackers with a ball each set up about 7m away, and two defenders (beekeepers) in between the attackers and the hives.
- Release one of the attackers, who aims to run to one of the hives. If they get inside the hive, it releases the bees.
- If they are tagged before the hive, they can pass the ball into the hive. If a player in the hive catches the ball, they can go back to the start. The tagged player goes into the hive.
- If the bees are released, then the beekeepers try to catch the bees before they can get back to 2m before where the attacker started.
- Any captured bees go back to their hive. The attacker who release them goes back to the start and swaps the ball with any safe bees.
- Once one attacker has tried, release the next attacker.
- Go until all the bees are free or there are no attackers left.
