NOODLE BALL

Bob Hawker submits a game today called Pool Noodle. I created the slide and it’s free for use (click to enlarge.) Here are the instructions from Bob.

Required, Pool Noodles, 2 folding chairs or small goals, small inflatable rubber ball.

Split your group in two and have them create a name (We will call them group A and B) number them off so that each person in group A has someone with the same number in group B (steal the bacon stye). Have them stand at opposite ends of the room facing each other. In the middle of the room place 8 pool noodles (i break them in half) and your ball. You call numbers 4 at a time and and hey run to the middle, pick up their noodle, and use it to hit the ball (hockey style) in their goal, (I use two metal folding chars and play you just have to hit your chair.

Suggestions: I always tell the students, its not a rule that you can’t hit people with you noodle but don’t dish it if you can’t take it. Also at the end i do the “Run Down” calling all the numbers in order i.e 1-4 then 5-8 etc. If it is taking too long you can call other numbers back as sometimes it is easier with less people.

    We play a game called Noodle Ball but we play it with noodles and Little Tykes basketball goals. Basic rules work like ultimate frisbee. You can’t move with the ball and obviously no dribbling. There’s also no goal tending rule pretty strictly enforced and a penalty box for excessive noodling or illegal noodling to the face. Sometimes we’ll play a short period with no dunking that makes it interesting, or we’ll turn the goals around to where they’re not facing each other.

    This was a GREAT game for our kids. We cut the pool noodles in half which made the hockey sticks a little more durable and we just set up cones for goals in our atrium. Great game if you have indoor space.
