Youth Ministry Games : Angle-Ball
Angle-Ball Submitted by: on September 8, 1998
Materials: 3 volley balls, 2 poles (10 foot)
Messy Rating: Clean up/Cool down
Duration: 5-20 minutes
Break group into two teams. At either end of a room place one of the 10 foot poles with a volleyball balanced on top of it (works best if placed in a corner). Mark off an area around the pole that is off limits using cones or another marker (10-15 feet is a good distance). No youth is allowed into this area. Decide who will get the play ball first via flipping a coin or a jumpball.
The object of the game is to knock the balanced ball off of the pole without hitting the pole. Youth may dribble the ball as in basketball, pass the ball, or take three steps with the ball if they are not dribbling. If a shot is taken at the ball on the pole and the pole is hit the team shooting is "polarized". The ball is replaced on the pole and the game resumes with the opposing team getting the ball. If a ball is shot and stays in the "off limits" area the opposing team gets the ball. Also if anyone steps in the off limits area, the opposing team gets the ball.
**Be sure there is nothing breakable behind the pole, many shots may be taken after a rebound off of the wall behind the pole, and depending on the players they are often hard throws.
