Bump 

The object of the game is to score before the player in front of you does.  If player A misses and player B scores right after player A is eliminated from the game. This game gets its name bump because you can use your ball to bump someone else’s. You can only bump with a ball and not your hands

Countdown

The object of the game is to be the last person with any points left.You pick a shooting order and everyone starts with 10 points.The first shooter takes a shot from anywhere. If it goes in, the 2nd player has to score from there. If they miss they lose a point and the next shooter can pick a new spot to shoot, if they score however next person in line shoots from the same spot and so on til it goes back to the original first shooter.  For every made shot the point count goes up. For example if 5 shots go in and someone misses? They lose 5 points.

H.O.R.S.E

Line Basketball
  1. First, decide on the order of turns.
  2. The first player then makes any kind of shot at the hoop.
  3. If Player 1 makes the shot, Player 2 has to try to make the same shot from the same place and using the same style that Player 1 did.
  4. If Player 2 makes the shot then Player 3 (or Player 1 depending on how many players you have) attempts the same shot...so on and so forth.
  5. But if Player 1 misses that first shot, the second player becomes the "leader." If Player 2 makes the shot, the other players must make the exact same shot...so on and so forth.
  6. Each time a player misses a shot, another letter is added to their score, beginning with H, then ORS, and finally, E. When a player spells Horse, he is out of the game.
  7. The last person standing wins.
1) Divide the class into two lines of players facing each other.2) Number each player in each line - for example one side are numbers #1-15 and the other line are numbers #1-15 so that the lines form partners facing each other...it may be wise for the teacher to ask the children to line up across from someone of equal basketball ability...3) Place two basketballs in between the lines which are 3 metres or 10 feet apart facing each other ...4) The teacher explains that he / she will call the first number from 1-15 and those two players must race to the 2 basketballs in front of the two lines of players (half way into each line), i.e.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 0 0 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 5) Once the ball is retrived by the two players (i.e., #7's), they pass the ball to each player down their line.. one player passes to their teammates one way, the other team goes the other way. 6) Both players chest pass down the line to each teammate and once reaching the end of all passes tries to make a basket shooting from outside the key. The first player to score a basket gets one point for their team. If a players misses, he/she keeps shooting from outside the key... play continues until one of the basketballs goes in from the two competing players... 7) After one basketball goes in, both balls are returned to the centre between the two lines facing each other and the losing player gets to yell the next number from 1-15...Play the game up to 10 points (which requires up to 20 numbers called so everyone gets a turn) Modifications:
  • if the class is odd numbered the teacher gets to play as the last number (it is not usually recommended for a teacher to play with the class!) but this is a very light, controlled activity and the class has great fun watching the teacher compete in a low organizational activity against a student
  • instead of a jump shot outside the key allow a lay up
  • instead of a basketball use another light ball like a playground ball
  • allow players to shoot from closer
  • instead of the chest pass dribble in and out in a zig zag between teammates..
This is a highly energenic exciting game with lots of cheering and nail biting... enjoy!
