A fun twist on 'monkey in the middle'. The object of this game is to STAY in the middle. All that is needed is a block, a hoop, and a dodgeball.
GOALIE: To make as many saves by protecting your block, get 10 consecutive saves and you earn a shutout! THROWERS: To throw the dodge ball and knock over the goalies block.
A hoop is placed in the middle of a large circle, inside this hoop is a block standing up. The goalie will attempt to protect the block, but may not enter the hoop. The throwers can pas the ball to each other and throw the ball at the block, trying to knock it down. If a thrower successfully knocks down the block, he or she then become the goalie. If the goalie makes ten consecutive saves, then her or she earns a shutout and switches places with a thrower. The throwers must stay on the outside of the large circle and cannot move closer to the goalie.
Add another dodge ball to increase the difficulty for the goalie. Add more blocks to increase the difficulty for the throwers!
