American Football

10:00 min

Materials:        1 ball


This is a game between two teams. The players must pass the ball to each other in order to score. Unlike American Football tackles are not allowed and you can pass both forward and backward. There is no dribbling in this game and the players cannot run with the ball. A player scores a touchdown by receiving the ball with a foot on or behind the baseline or by reaching in across the baseline and putting the ball down on the ground. Play three games and then break up the teams.


  • This game will help the players move without the ball while working on their passing skill


Reflective Decision-making: This game teaches the players to make better thought through decisions, as more attention is given to the position of their teammates with no dribbling allowed improving teamwork.
