Grade Level: 3-5

There is one pin in the middle of the court and four cones in a square shape around. Each cone has a ball that is to be rolled at the pin. Players will be split up into four teams and each team should line up behind a cone. On the signal, the first person in each line tries to roll the ball and knock down the pin. If the pin is missed, the rest of the team in line trying to gather the closest ball to give to the second player to try and knock the pin down. Once the pin is knocked down, each team moves to their designated basketball hoop and begins shooting at the hoop from anywhere, keeping track of the baskets made. After one minute of shooting, each teams returns to their starting cone and the next person in line rolls the ball at the pin and the game resumes.
