Soccer • There are 11 players • The object of the game is to score the most goals. • There are many different line-ups arranging the defense and offense, plus a keeper. For example, you could play a three, four, three, or a two, five, three, plus the keeper. • Each tactic has its own advantages. • Only the keeper is allowed to use their hands within the 18 yard line. • If the ball goes out of bounds on the side lines, it’s a throw in, but if it goes out on the backline, depending on which team kicked it, it is either a goal kick on the 6 yard line, or a corner kick.
Volleyball • There are 6 players on the court. • The object of each game is for a team to score 25 points. There are at least three games to play. • The team uses their hands to pass the ball. • When the other team scores a point, the other team rotates on the court. • You could only pass the ball three times in order to send it over the net. • The setter is the most important player on the court because they pass the ball to an outside or inside player so they could spike it over the net.
Basketball • There are 5 players on each team on the court. • The object of this game is to score as many baskets as you can before time runs out. • If you score a basket within the three point arc, you earn two points.
