Speedball

Submitted by:Traditional on or sooner
Held:Not Yet
Skills Required:Physical
Difficulty:Easy
Location:Outdoors
Time Frame:Day
Work as:Team
Equipment Needs:Light
Basics:Like Soccer, only hands can be used. Balls can be thrown or kicked.Players can run with the ball, but for no more than three steps. Limitedtackling allowed, but penalty shots for egregious violence. Probably needa referee to monitor the penalties. Scoring can be very high, depending on the size of the goals. I think that we might consider setting them up in advance,like we do for four square volleyball. We might even end up playing more than one gameparticularly if the numbers are large.
Variations:Four teams, each defending their own goal. Or, three teams,like Old Men, Goons, DHQX types, or by month of birth or some otherscheme. Teams would be eliminated at some number of goals, and their goal removed. Poiints count against team scored on, scoring team does not matter.
Equipment List:None Submitted
