Safe Zones - Tag Game (10 mins)

Safe Zones - Tag Game

Let the players set up an appropriate number of safe zones or home zones around an area. They can be any shape or size as long they are clearly a closed shape. Let the players experiment as they get older.

Select a number of taggers appropriate to the total number of players.

Ideal of the game is for the taggers to add to their team by tagging the red players, they then become taggers - can use bibs in shorts to pull or bibs in hand to change over roles if desired or last man standing game.

P1 - no more than 5 seconds within each safe zone

P2 - no more than 1 player in a safe zone, resident player must move off once another player arrives

How can we get away from the taggers, how can we fool the taggers on where we are going and which direction we are heading?
