SUPER PIN GUARD
Equipment: 10 pins, 3 nerf footballs, 3 small playground balls, 3 larger soft
Object: make points
Set up the pins on the opposing endlines evenly across the line. Choose two
teams and have them on each side of the gymnasium. Put the 9 balls on the
On your signal have the teams get the balls. The football is thrown into the
basket of the opposing team's basketball net and is worth 10 points. The
small playground balls and the other soft balls are thrown, bounced or rolled
to knock down the pins and it is worth 1 point for each one knocked down.
Every ball caught, even off the wall or off the backboard is worth a point.
The team with a pin knocked down may ask the referee if they have enough
points to set it back up and they have one point subtracted for each pin they
reset. If all pins are knocked down then they all are reset and the balls are
put back in the middle and the game starts over again.
No one may cross the center line or hold more than one ball in their hands at
a time. If anyone is hit in the face the thrower comes to the side and does
15 jumping jacks. If anyone throws a ball (other than the football) higher
than the shoulders than they go to the side and do the jumping jacks also.
It works better to have two referees, each watching one side and keeping track
of the points.
The kids all loved it. I played it 3rd-5th grades.
