Basket ball in the park

At the end of first term 2009 when the Guides were planning out their program a few wanted ball activities.  Others wanted to have a BBQ, while still others wanted just to be outside later than normal. Friends were invited.

We ended up going to the Glendonald park ion Churchill.  Here there is a net ball and basket ball court.  Well half the court is net ball, the other half is basket ball.

After all the glass was swept away we were able to go on with trying to get a leader to throw the basket ball  into the hoop.  After a while she actually did it.  Much to her surprise.  But the Guides won the count.  Even Debbies 2 year old grandchild helped.  We put her on our shoulders then helped her throw the ball into the hoop.  We stood under the hoop.  She did better than the leaders.

The leaders might need practice gettintg the ball into the hoop but they can still pass the ball with force behind it!

Keep it up

Originally this game came from Communicating September 2002 P 8. Over time several changes have been made. 

  

Keep it Up!** players are in a scattered formation and try to keep a beach ball in the air as long as they can by hit­ting it before it touches the floor. Each time a player hits the ball, she says something relating to the theme selected. Examples include items in a first aid kit, sporting events, healthy snacks, what to take on a hike, safety hazards etc..
