1 GAME: Here to There Penalty!!!

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. Show Players the starting line and finish line for the game.
  2. Explain to the Players that they have to run from “Here” to “There.”
  3. Time the run; you can simple count 1-2-3…for your “Timer.”
  4. Options for racing: Have the boys run first, then girls, or have the Players under age 10 run first, then the Players over age 10 run next.
  5. Important: After the first round, determine the average time and then cut that time roughly in half (Yes, you want the Players to fail and earn a penalty).
  6. Before they run again announce: “There is a penalty of 10 pushups for everyone if everyone cannot run under the new time.”
  7. Now require each group to run from “Here” to “There” in under the new announced time. (The Players will not be able to run under the new time.)
  8. Say “You look so tired. I have an idea!” call up one of the Coaches to “take the Player’s penalty” and do the 10 pushups in place of the Players. For fun have the Players count out loud the 10 penalty pushups!
