Focus - Ball Literacy

Name of Game: Nuts and Squirrels


Teams are divided into 4 groups - each group is given a

different colored pinni. All the balls positioned in middle

square. On coaches command 1 player from each group

collects a ball (nut) from the middle. Player dribbles ball

back to their triangle (tree) – next player can go when the

ball is stopped in the triangle. When the coach stops the

game, the team with the most balls (nuts) in their triangle

wins the game.


Easier – Instead of dribbling players use hands.

Harder – One player from each group is allowed to steal a

ball from the other team’s triangle.
