What Are We Doing? Attempting to score by shooting over an obstacle
Where Should We Do It? Driveway, Backyard, Sidewalk, flat hard ground
What Do We Need? Measuring tape, tape/chalk, 2 laundry baskets/ storage bins/ small garbage cans, hockey stick, puck/small balls/rolled socks
How Should We Set Up? Mark your shooting line with chalk or tape, measure 10 feet from the line and place one of your baskets/bins upside down (this is your obstacle), measure 5 feet from the obstacle and place your second basket/bin here with the opening facing your shooting line.
How Do We Do It?
- From your shooting line shoot the puck/ball/socks 10 times
- You are trying to shoot over the obstacle and get the puck into the second basket
- Keep track of what happens each time (lands in 2nd basket, hits 2nd basket, goes over obstacle but doesn’t score or hit the target)
- Award the following points to each of your shots:
Lands in the Basket – 5 points
Hit the target Basket – 2 point
Makes it over the Obstacle, but does not hit or go into the target basket – 1 point
Scoring: Add up all of your points- 2 in the basket (10)+ 1 hit the target basket (2)+ 7 misses= 12 points
