Warm Up

Hop

Each student starts holding one leg and hopping on the other. Once the whistle blows the goal is to hop and push or maneuver someone out of the circle or in a manner in which they let go of their held leg to regain their balance. If you are pushed out of the circle or if you let go of your leg so that both feet hit, you are out. 42. Game Hop Tag 42. Game Hop Tag

GAME

FREEZE TAG

One or two designated “taggers," have foam balls that they use to throw and tag. Once “tagged” you need to Freeze in a good wrestling stance. Only way you can become unfrozen is by having another person complete a good double leg takedown.

If you don’t have foam balls you can simple revert to traditional touch tag.
