Doctor Ball

This game is great if you have a gym; it's a favorite from working at the YMCA. 1) Divide the group in 2 teams. Have each team stand on opposite ends of the gym and line up a variety of soft foam/kickballs in the middle of the gym. 2) Before play each team chooses a "Dr." who is allowed to tag "sick" players back into the game. 3) On your signal, the teams rush up to the middle and grab a ball and basically play dodgeball, being sure not to cross over into the other teams' side of the gym and targeting only the waist and below. 4) When a player is hit, they are "sick" and sit down where they were hit. The trick is to see whose team can keep their Doctor a secret, because once the doctor is out, everyone is out for good. 5) If your gym has basketball goals on each end, you can add a rule that if anyone hits the rim with a ball from their end of the gym - everyone, including the doctor, is back in the game. 6) If someone catches a ball before it hits the ground, the thrower is out. 7) If a thrower hits someone in the head, the thrower is out. Good for emphasizing waist and below targeting.
