Gator Ball


This game is a combination of hockey, soccer, and football. You will need two teams, two goals marked out, and a ball.

The basics of the game: You start the game out with the ball in the middle and one person from each team at the ball or “puck” in the center. On “go” they have to use their hand as a hockey stick and get the ball between their legs to their team. At any point in the game, whenever the ball is on the ground it plays as soccer and whenever it is in the air you can catch it and play it like football. Goalies can use their hands at any time.

    Great Game, Our youth group loved it. Clarification, it works well when you have the ball in the air or in your hands you cannot move until you throw the ball
