Prisoners 1 vs 1

MIDDLE PHASE

The children are divided into two teams (offense and defense) and they are positioned as shown on the diagram. Four rows with offense and everybody has a ball. Defense (prisoners) has no balls and they are in four rows by the half court circle. The first player at the half court circle starts the game by moving towards a player with a ball and when the player from the half court circle crosses a predetermined line (could be on volleyball court) then the player with the ball next to him/her can attack the basket and they then play 1 vs 1. If the defense steals the ball without fouling, then he/she gets a point for his/her team. If the offense scores or gets fouled, then he/she get a point for his/her team.
