101 FUN & FIT games you can play with the ANGLEBALL® Standard!

Ideas for Elementary-age kids & fun-loving athletes of all ages!

Galaxy War!

Perfect for Elementary School Gym. Angleball Standards are the "Space Ship Energy Cores" and rest on a series of floor mats which are the "Space Ship". "Crew members" players cannot leave their mats. Each Space Ship is separated by gym floor - "Outer Space". Only players on scooters "Drones" can go on the gym floor to collect dodge-balls to bring back to the Space Ship. Players throw dodgeballs from their mats to knock over the opposing team's target. The first team to knock over the opposing team's target 3 times, or to any set number, is the winner! Or just play for fun with no winners and losers; everytime the target is knocked over, that team has to do 5 jumping jacks before reseting the target! 

 

 

Knock Over The Coconut!

Teams cannot cross onto the other team's side. Lots of soft throw balls are scattered around the playspace. Each side has an Angleball Standard inside a circle that no one can go inside. The objective is to knock over the opposing team's target - their "coconut"! In action, this is similar to dodgeball, except the target is a thing, rather than a person. Players can block balls flying toward their coconut! Play to points or time! 

Jurassic Ball!

Play with a lowered 2-4 foot Angleball standard and a plethora of "Dinosaurs" which the kids play as! T-rex cannot use his hands, feet only. Brontosaurus can use hands or feet and is two kids loosely connected at the wrists or ankles - cannot separate! Velociraptor can only use his hands, but cannot throw, and can only hand off the angleball! Score using the hands or feet, but the Angleball cannot be picked off the ground, only chipped up to the hands from the ground!   

Blindfold Ball!

Everyone is blind-folded except a caller on each team who can see and shouts instructions! Ball-carrier must always yell "throwing!" before throwing so no one gets slapped in the face (always play safely, kids)!

Angle-Golf!

Similar to Disc Golf, but with an Angleball Standard! Who can knock down the target with the fewest throws?

Human Foosball!

Players can only move in lanes, like foosball players! One player per team is free from the lanes and can chase down loose balls!

Hands... and feet?!

Play with a 2-4 foot Standard and now players can score with their hands... or feet a la soccer! The Angleball cannot be picked-up from the ground - it must always be popped up with the foot (safety first)!

Spy Ball!

Fun for ovenight camp! Play in the dark with flashlights and glow-in-the-dark materials - always play safe and with proper supervision!

Red Light Green Light!

Classic Angleball, but the athletes can only move when the ref shouts "green light!" (or when the music is playing for a fun variation)! Players must freeze when "red light" is called!

Bonus Point Circles!

Classic Angleball with Hoola-hoops or markings on the ground that give bonus points if scored from!

Capture the Target!

Detach the targets from the Angleball Standard; what a perfect pedestal for classic "Capture the Flag"! Who can Capture the Target?

Gang up on the goalie!

This might require lowering the target. Play with a soft throwball, and have a goalie defend from inside the target circle while everyone tries to knock down the target! A fun fitness drill!

Juggle Ball!

If you are holding the Angleball, you can only move while tossing the Angleball above your head!

Blob-Tag Angleball!

Played with an offense and a defense. The offense tries to score, but everytime offense is tagged within the defense's boundary they join "The Blob" - kids connected at the elbows! Play 360 degrees around a single Angleball standard! How many points can the offense score before The Blob consumes all?! 

Lots o' Teams!

2 teams is boring! Why not 3 teams? Why not 4! Spice up almost any game-type by tossing extra teams in the mix!

Around We Go!

The Angleball must pass to everyone on a team before a shot attempt!

Angle-Lacrosse!

Interesting historical fact: Classic Angleball is based on an ancient Native American sport called Anejodi, which was played by hand or with sticks. The stick version became modern day Lacrosse... Bring back a classic by playing Angleball with Lacrosse sticks! 

Trampoline Angleball!

Angleball safetly supervised at a trampoline park! How fun!

Parkour Angleball!

Sometimes simply having supervision is not enough! Pros only for this one! Set up the Angleball Standard at a parkour course and play non-contact or touch rules!

Kayak Angleball!

Did we mention the Angleball Standard is water-proof? No paddling while holding the Angleball! Use paddles to block shots! Fun for camp! Serious & safe lifeguard supervision only! 

Relay Race!

Form a line and take shots at the target! Racing to reset the target after a strike sure is a workout! Which team can hit the target the most number of times? Great drill!

Divide the gym or field into four Quadrants with an Angleball Standard in each corner. Players must stay in their Quadrants. Flood the play area with dodgeballs and try and knock over the opposing teams' targets!

Play with a lowered 2-4 foot Angleball standard. It's roller (or ice) hockey with a ball and targets! Always play with safe supervision!

Skeet shoot Angleball!

Players take turns trying to knock off the Angleball target from a distance while players on either side try and knock the Angleball out of the air with dodgeballs! Players should always be opposite of each other so there is someone to catch the balls! 

Wizards Unite!

Angleball with a Wizards theme! If a Wizard hits the ball-carrier with a dodgeball then they can make the ball-carrier do different things depending on the "spell"; for example, freeze in place for 10 seconds, or hop on 1 leg until the next point!   

Wall-Ball!

Play indoors with the Angleball Standards set against the walls, now all missed shots will bouce back! 

Super Heroes!

Angleball with a Super Heroes theme! The heroes must work together to destroy the villain's energy orb (the target) with the Angleball! Different heroes have different abilities! Some heroes have pool noodles, others can use dodgeballs to freeze other players, one player can tag people on their side and send an opponent to a jail circle until freed, etc... Get creative! 

Target Blast!

One team is offense and one is defense. Offense is not allowed inside the super-sized 20-foot-radius circle around the Angleball Standard, only the defense can go in there. Scatter dodgeballs, and anyone hit must sit down until the person who got them out, gets out! How many times can the offense hit the Angleball target before the time is up? 

Freeze-tag Angleball!

Play with two sides, each with an Angleball Standard and a jail circle. One Angleball is in play. If a player is tagged on the opposing team's side then they go to the jail circle until freed by a teammate, and given a free walk back. 

Monster-Ball!

Another fantasy Angleball game (see: Super Heroes) where players can be different monsters with different abilities using dodgeballs, pool noodles, freeze-tags and jail circles (get creative)! Play with two field halfs or with offense and defense and one Angleball standard in the middle!

Gunner-Ball!

Each target-circle has a dodge-ball weilding Goalie, and a helper who retrieves balls to the Goalie's ball container! When hit by a dodgeball, players can either go to a jail circle, sit down until the next point, or use your imagination!

All-Terrain!

Who says you need to play Angleball either on grass OR on sand OR in water? Angleball does not require boundary lines, so have fun playing all terrain, just make sure kids play safe and supervised! Perfect for Summer Camps!  

Batter Up!

Classic Angleball, but each team has a batter's circle that only the hatter is allowed inside, and where the Angleball is teed up on a batter's tee with a foam bat! Huge bonus for striking the target with the ball from off the tee!  

AngleCraft!

Classic non-contact or touch Angleball, except before the match, players build mazes around their targets using gym mats on edge as barriers! Fun for Elementary School Gyms! 

The Floor is Lava!

Don't step on the gym mats that are laying flat - they are lava! One player per team is a Lava Monster who can retrieve the Angleball if it lands on a gym mat!

Froggy ball!

Everyones feet are tied together so they can only hop! This is a major workout! 

Halloween Ball!

Can you smash the other team's Pumpkin (target)? Each team has a "Witch" riding a pool noodle and if the Witch tags someone on the Witch's side, that player must go to the "Dark World" - a jail that is marked off, until saved by a teammate! 

Christmas Ball!

Classic Angleball, but with three Angleballs in play and 3 Angleball Standards on each side (6 Standards total)! (Santa came and gave us more Angleball equipment, hurray! Also, 3 is the Trinity!)

Animal Ball!

Classic Angleball, but each team has a Zoo Keeper, a Zoo and a whole bunch of animals! If the Zoo Keeper catches you on his side you go to the Zoo (market off with cones) until rescued - the Zoo Keeper only walks, never runs! the rest of the players are different animals with different traits. Frogs can only hop, Seals scoot around on scooters, Elephants are two kids loosely tied together, crabs crab-walk, etc... Get creative!   

It's a Numbers Game!

Classic Angleball but players only join the game when their number is called (every player on each team is assigned a number). Perfect when you have a huge group of kids and want to rotate players in a fun way!  

Ga-Ga for Angleball!

Classic Angleball, played with lowered 2-4 foot Angleball standards, and an 8" playground ball in place of the Angleball. The "Angleball" can only be moved by rolling it on the ground like in GaGa - no gripping the ball! To shoot, the "Angleball" is swatted off the ground!

Undercover Ball!

One player on each team is secretly assigned by the referee as "Undercover" and actually plays for the OPPOSITE team that he / she wears a jersey for! At the end of the game each team is allowed to guess who was Undercover, and if the Spy is guessed then points are deducted - potentially swaying the outcome!  A sneaky game of espionage and high fitness! 

Spies vs. Mercs!

A gametype played at night with safe supervision and lots of cover: trees, buildings, etc.... One team is offense (the Spies), and one team is defense (the Samurais). The Samurais have small, low-power flashlights, and if they spot a Spy and call the Spy's name, the Spy must return to their side and try again! The Spies have lots of throwing stars - "Angleballs" that they can use to knock down the target, and the target must be in a place where it is lit with moonlight.  

Send in the Marines!

Classic Angleball with nerf guns! if you are hit with a nerf pellet on the opposing team's side then you go to the jail area until rescued! Works best with an offense and a defense, and zones that the defense cannot leave.  

Super Jump Bros!

Classic Angleball but with dodgeballs everywhere, and instead of throwing the dodgeballs at opponents on your side, you have to roll them like a "turtle shell" so your opponent has to jump!

Angleball with a Goalie!

A general idea that can be applied to lots of different game-types listed here! Play with a lowered 2-4 foot Angleball standard, and a soft foam Angleball (so it does not hurt if getting wapped in the face by accident). Each team is allowed a goalie in the target-circle! All the other rules are Classic Angleball rules! 

Angleball with a Ninja Goalie!

Same as "Angleball with a goalie" except the standard is not lowered, and the goalie uses a foam noodle "sword" to block shots! 

Slow Ball!

Classic Angleball except running is not allowed! A great drill to help athletes better understand the flow of the game. 

Water Angleball!

Did you know that Angleball can be played in water!? But only with safe & proper supervision for the young ones! Why not mix it up and have one Standard on the beach, and one in the surf? Switch sides after every few points!

4 Downs Angleball!

Played around one Angleball Standard with concentric circles around it every 10 yards. the objective is to knock over the target. Everything else is touch or flag Football rules, 4 downs, etc..! 

Deliver the Orb!

This gametype is played holding the target instead of the Angleball! The objective is to run the target (which is detached obviously) into the target-circle and place the target on the standard! All other Classic Angleball rules apply!   

Fantasy Angleball!

Angleball with a fantasy theme! Giants, wizards, knights and dragons! Giants can only walk in big strides but score a point if they touch the ball-carrier! Wizards cast spells with a touch that make kids do silly things (like they can only run backward for a point)! Knights have foam noodle swords! Dragons shoot fireballs (dodgeballs)! Bonus points for building gym mat Castles!  

Angleball on the Moon?!

Why should golf be the only sport played on the Moon? In the meantime, this is a fun game to play while wearing springy moon shoes - or at a trampoline park! 

Off the wall!

Angleball in an enclosed racketball court! How silly (and ricochet-y)!

Backyard Angleball!

Look, just like people, every backyard is different. Enbrace the differences! Bushes, trees and other obstacles add character to your backyard Angleball field - embrace it! 

Duck Hunt!

One team is defense and one is offense. lots of dodgeballs "ducks" spread out everywhere. The goal of the offense is to knock over the target using the dodgeballs. The defense can only guard the target by "shooting the ducks" dodgeballs out of the sky using other dodgeballs!

Sprinkler Angleball!

Sprinklers make everything more fun, especially on a hot summer's day! Add a sprinkler to your Angleball field for wet, refreshing fun! And always remember to play safe (it's slippery out there)! 

Slip & Slide Angleball!

What, your summer Angleball field does not have a sprinkler OR a slip & slide running through it?? Tsk tsk!

Volleyball Angleball!

How good are you at Volleyball, really, if you cannot hit an Angleball target in the middle of each court for bonus points? 

Count Your Steps!

No one is allowed to move until the Ref calls out a number. At that point every player on the field may only take that number of steps, then pause. Then the ref calls a new number, and repeat. this is a fun drill that slows the pace of play, making it more about strategy. 

Ninjas vs. Marines!

Classic-y Angleball, but one team has foam noodle "swords" the other has dodgeballs!

My Feet are in Cement!

A silly drill! Classic Angleball, but only one player on each team is allowed to move their feet! the other players are evenly spread around the field, and can catch, pass and shoot - just not move their feet!

Giant Targets!

Kids having trouble hitting the targets, or you have adaptive fitness needs? Lowed the Standard and replace the targets with oversized playground balls!  

Stay on the Lines!

Classic Angleball except there are lines on the court and players must follow the lines (except for one player on each team who has super powers and can chase down stray Angleballs that are not on the lines!). 

"Kick the Can" Angleball

Similar to "Kick the Can". One player is the defender, everyone else is offense. Every player on offense has their own Angleball. the target is at the center of the play-space. At the beginning of each round, offense hide. Defense tries to spot everyone on offense (and call them out by name) before someone on offense can score by knocking over the target.   

Heavy!

Great idea for CrossFit! Classic Angleball, but the Angleball is replaced with a heavier fitness ball! Great body workout! Always play with proper precautions. 

Kickball Angleball!

Played with two sides, and players are not allowed on the opposing side. the play space is filled with kickballs. The objective is to kick a ball and knock over the opposing team's target at the end of their side! 

Noisy Ball!

Everyone is blind-folded and the Angleball and targets are equiped with beeping or noise-making devices! Thrower must always call "throwing" before making a throw so no one gets slapped in the face. Ref needs to make sure no one bumps into each other. Always play with proper safety precautions. 

Skate Park Angleball!

This is another one of those gametypes where supervisions just isn't enough - pros only. Classic Touch Angleball played in the pools and jumps of a skate park while wearing skates or on boards. Whaaat?!

Trick Shot Angleball!

Try and best your friends with the most ridiculous trick shots possible, record, upload to YouTube and become a social media celeb! :-p

Bubble-Suit Angleball

Bubble-suits + Angleball = Profit!

Multi-Target Angleball

Who says you can only have 1 target per team? Why not 2? Why not 3?

Marathon Angleball!

True story, in the old days anejodi (and also the original football) were played between entire towns over many miles... We're just saying!

Jet Ski Angleball!

One day... One day...

Snowball Fight Angleball!

Take any of the Dodgeball Angleball variations listed, and substitute with a snowball fight :-) Bonus points for building a snow fort around your target! 

Huge Ball!

Classic Angleball, except the Angleball is substituted with a HUGE ball - for example, a huge beach ball! 

Caterpillar-Ball!

Classic Angleball, except the players on each team are connected at the elbow like a giant caterpillar! Also, each team has one "butterfly" who is not connected, and cannot shoot the ball, and can only hand it or pass it to the Catarpillar! 

King of the Castle!

One team is offense and one is defense. the defense may throw dodgeballs at the offensive on the inside of the defenses 30ft radius target-circle. Twist: one designated player on offense is the King. If the King scores then it is worth 5 points BUT if the King gets out then the round is immediately over and offense and defense switch sides!    

Tennis Angleball

Regular Tennis, but there is an Angleball Standard set to 4 feet in the back of each court. Knocking over the target gives bonus points!

Bump Ball!

Angleball with the Standard lowered to 2-4 feet. The Angleball is substituted for a soccer ball. The "Angleball" can be moved with any part of the body except an open hand - hands must always be fists! 

Basketball Angleball!

Everything is basketball, including the ball, except the objective is to knock down the Angleball Target! Played 360 degrees around the target! 

Monkey in the Middle Angleball!

Need at least 3 people to play. It's exactly like classic "monkey in the middle" except the Monkey is guarding a lowered 2-6 foot Angleball Standard, while the players on both sides take shots! If the money catches the Angleball, then there is a new Monkey!

Hide & Seek Angleball!

One player is the "Seeker". Everyone else hides; only one "Hider" has the Angleball. Can the offense score before the ball-carrier is spotted? Works best when there are lots of places to hide and sneak around! 

Crab Ball!

The most gruelling game type ever! Players must travel everywhere while crab walking! 

Playground Angleball!

Players may only walk while on Playground equipment. Classic Angleball with a Playground in the middle! Always supervise and follow proper safety precautions!
