1 GAME: Capture the Flag: Strategy or Purpose!!!

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. Show Players the boundaries that the game will be played in. Point out the center line that divides the field in half, one half for “Team 1” and the other for “Team 2.” Then point out that each team has a “Flag” hiding in one of the back corners of their side of the field and in the other back corner is their “Jail.”
  2. Explain that each team’s goal is to be the first team to grab the “Flag” and bring it back to their side.
  3. Then explain that once a Player crosses the center line into the other team’s territory the other team can tag them and send them to that team’s “Jail.” They must remain in “Jail” until a fellow teammate frees them by tagging them out. After they are released, they are free to run back to their side without getting tagged. If a Player is tagged while carrying the “Flag,” they must drop the “Flag” where they were tagged and go to “Jail.”
  4. Begin the game. Allow it to continue until one team brings the “Flag” back to their side.
  5. For the second round, encourage the Players to strategize and determine who will guard the “Flag” and who will run for the other team’s “Flag.” Allow Coaches to help.
