Closing Activity (5 Minutes)
Four teams are organized, each of which forms one side of a square. Players sit down, facing in, with hands braced behind them. The members of each team are numbered consecutively. Players wait until their number is called. Eight active players (two from each team) move in crab position and try to kick the cageball over any one of the three opposing teams. The sideline players can also kick the ball. Ordinarily, the hands are not used, but can be allowed in the learning stages of the game.
A point is scored against a team that allows the ball to go over its line. A ball that goes out at the corner between teams is dead and replayed. After a short bout of time (10 to 20 seconds), the active players retire to their teams and another number is called. The team with the fewest points wins the game. This game is strenuous for the active players, so rotate them often.
Evaluation/Review and Cheer
Review elements of the back corner return shot. Under what condition will the server receive a point? You performed the schottische step during fitness. From what country did that step originate? What is one of the benefits of playing Cageball Kickover?
