Team games: Paper Stick Hockey

Contributed by: Luke Shaw, Diocese of Nelson

paperstickhockeySDivide your group into 2 teams, and have them stand on opposite sides of a rectangular playing area, with a small goal at each end. Number everyone off and give each person a rolled up paper stick made with newspaper and masking tape. Place a small ball in the centre and call in a number!

As you call, players must enter the playing area and try to score a goal for their team. If you call a number back out, they must exit. You can call in multiple numbers, e.g.  ‘3s and 5s’, ‘Girls only’, ‘Guys only’ or ‘All in’ if you’re bold.

The first team to reach a designated score wins.

This is a great energy burner!
