Two equal teams and a chair under each basket. One player from each team sits in the chair and acts as a goalie. Start the game with a jump ball. No dribbling is allowed and players must play man to man defense. The ball must be passed up the court without touching the floor. To score a point the offense must pass the ball to their goalie.
The player to pass it to the goalie takes his/her place on the chair and the defense gets the ball out of bounds.
A violation of a rule results in a turnover.
Even Teams (8- 12 players)
Stress denying the ball on defense and moving without the ball on offense.
A rule which works well with younger children is making them square up when they catch the ball.
If chairs are unavailable one player may stand in the key and to score a point a bounce pass must be successfully made to him/her.
