Cones to mark the playing field
SETUP Divide the class into two teams and mark out a rectangular playing field with cones. The length of the field should be around three times the width. Place two cones at each end of the field to mark the end zones.

The game begins with one team throwing the ball to the other team, with the aim of catching it in the opposing team's end zone.
If a player successfully catches the ball in the end zone, their team scores a point.
If a player is tagged by a defender before catching the ball, they must return to their own end zone and try again.
Players cannot hold onto the ball for more than three seconds.
After each successful catch, the scoring team throws the ball to the other team to start the next round.
The game continues until a predetermined number of points have been scored, or a set amount of time has elapsed.
