PE Activity #8 - "Golden Child"


  • For Basketball or Netball

  • Develops speed and accuracy under pressure

  • Extremely fun!


  • Use Basketball court

  • Netball or Basketball

  • Cones optional


  1. Two teams: one lined up on the 3 point line with a basketball (black). The other team lines up on the corner (blue)

  2. The blue team must try and run around the entire court to get a point

  3. Meanwhile the black team are trying to get the ball in the hoop. As soon as they do this, the teacher blows their whistle and the blue runner stops where they are, and a new blue runner starts running. Repeat for next runners.

  4. Finally, the 'golden child' is the last blue runner to go. When they run past their team mates who are frozen, they can high-five them and begin running for the last cone together before the black team sinks the final hoop.


  • Easier = smaller area

  • Harder = bigger area, shooters closer to hoop
