Kickboard Toss

How to play:

Members of each team line up on the edge of the pool opposite a hoop. The aim is to throw the kickboards so that they land within the hoop; each player uses all three kickboards and scores one point for each successful throw. When number 1 has thrown each board, that player enters the water, retrieves the boards and returns them to number 2, an so on until all team members have had a turn. The team with the highest score wins.


A tethered hoop and three kickboards for each team.


Number: Small group to whole class.

Organization: Team of four working from edge to hoop and back; hoop 10 meters from edge (or at distance appropriate to ability of players)

Areas: Shallow water.
