Handball with benches
Like 1 on 1 football but using only hands instead.
2 benches and a soft football sized ball.
Set up a bench on its side at each end of the hall.
Split the troop into 2 teams and within each team, give the Scouts a number: 1 to however many there are.
Each team sits on the floor behind their bench.
Put the ball in the middle of the hall.
The game starts when a Leader calls out a number.
The Scout on each team that was given that number has to:
- run and touch the other bench
- run back to the middle and try to score a goal by hitting the ball into their own goal
- the Scout can only use their hands to hit the ball and cannot pick up the ball
- it's ok to block the ball if it hits their legs but they should not kick the ball
The 'go' ends when one of the Scouts called scores a goal.
The ball then goes back to the middle, Scouts go behind their bench again and the Leader calls another number.
Once everyone has had a go you can start calling out more than one number at once.
Team with the most goals scored wins.
