Objective:

  • A team of 5 people who identify as a man and 5 people who identify as a woman (alternating genders) will line up facing the back of each teammate. The team must pass a rubber kickball from one end of the field to the other by either passing the ball over their head or under their legs, alternating with each person (the first person must start passing the ball over their head, the second person passes the ball under their legs, the third passes the ball over their head, and so on). 
  • The game is complete when the ball has traveled completely across the field and all players have passed the finish line. Once the entire team is seated, the corresponding referee will raise his or her or their hand to signal the completion of the team’s relay.

Rules: 

  • Must use a ball with a circumference of 26 inches.
  • A violation of any of the following rules will result in a warning:
    • Teams must follow the “over-under” rule
    • Teams must not throw or toss the ball
    • Feet must not move after being planted
  • Similar to Thread the Needle, if the ball falls to the ground, then it must be taken to the front of the line, and the players must start again where they are.
  • When a player no longer has possession of the ball, they must run to the end of the line to wait for their next turn.
  • Once players have reset themselves and have planted their feet, they MUST keep their feet PLANTED and are not allowed to move until the ball has released their hands.
  • Once the whole team has crossed the finish line and all the players are seated, the team is then finished.

Violating any of the following rules will result in a warning: 

  • Teams must follow the “over­ under” rule. 
  • Teams must not throw or toss the ball. 
  • Ball cannot scrape the ground 
  • Feet must not move after being planted.
