Team Champ Basketball

Suggested Grade Level:9-12
Materials Needed:2 basketballs, 1 basketball goal per game.
Description of Idea
This game is a great game to use with classes of high numbers in that you can play with as many as 16-18 students in one game. The game also keeps everyone on their toes because everyone must receive a pass before the shooter can shoot.
* Make an even number of teams with 3-4 students per team.
* Two teams will play against each other at one goal.
* The teams line up on opposite sidelines arm's length between each player.
* One player from each team has a basketball.
* The player with the ball is the team's shooter.
* The two shooters, one from each team, meet at the top of the 3-point line (or the free throw line) and touch balls to begin play.
* After the shooters touch the basketballs together, they must pass to each person on their team one time before they can begin shooting.
* The first shooter to make a basket scores one (1) point for his/her team.
* The shooters then become passers on their teams' sidelines.
* A new shooter comes out for each team.
* No student should have more turns to shoot than any other student on the team.
Instead of using a basketball, a foam ball could be used.
A trash can could be used as a basket if the basket cannot be lowered to an adequate height.
Assess the students mechanics of passing and shooting under pressure by utilizing an assessment form for these specific skills.
Identify students who use good teamwork and spacial awareness and be sure to point this out to the class.
If a basket isn't scored fairly quickly feel free to change the shooters yourself.
