Title – Scooter Basketball Idea
By – Anthony LaBella
Primary Subject – Health / Physical Education
Grade Level – 3-5


      Scooters for whole class


      1 Beach ball


      2 Hula-hoops


      4 Mobile poles


    6 Cones to mark out of bounds

Game: There will be two teams of equal number. It does not matter how many students play at a time, preferably everyone. The court is set up indoors. The court can be has wide as needed and as long as desired. Students are to stay on their scooters at all times. If the ball goes out of bounds, then they can come off and retrieve the ball. The game is played by two teams of equal number. The court is set up with a hula-hoop taped in between two mobile poles, with the opening of the hoop running parallel with the poles. The hoops are to be positioned in the center of the baseline on both sides of the court (out of bounds). The game will start with the toss up of a beach ball by the physical educator, simulating a tip-off in a real basketball game. Students on offense are to pass the ball as much as possible to send the ball down into their half and ultimately score by throwing the ball through the hoop for one point. Once a team scores, the opposite team will gain possession in their defensive half. The defense is not allowed to slap the ball out of another player’s hands. The defense, or anyone, is not allowed to push a player off of their scooter. The defense is allowed to pick up a loose ball and block passes and shots. If a ball goes out of bounds, then the ball will be deemed to the opposite team that touched the ball last before it went out of bounds. If at any time a player intentionally picks their rear off of the scooter, their team gets warned the first time. The second time, their team looses possession of the ball, if they have possession, or they loose a point. The game will consist of two equally timed halves, if possible. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
