The Ghostbuster (coach) must try to make the city safe again by ridding the streets of ghosts by shooting them with his ghostblaster (striking his ball at the players hitting their knee or anywhere below).

If a Ghost leaves the city or is hit by ghostblaster they are turned into a Ghostbuster and collect their ghostblaster (ball)

Game ends when there is one ghost left

Coaching Points:

- Try to get as close as possible to a Ghost before shooting your blaster.

- Make sure you know where in the city to look for the Ghosts are by looking up.

- Try to make sure you aim for a Ghost and not just shoot your blaster when you can as it may end up in the other side of the city and take a long time for you to get it back.

Progressions:

The ghostblaster will only work if use it properly (using designated part of foot – inside or laces, if players use their toes then their blaster miss-fires and won't capture the ghost)
