Traditional Play is the original bubble soccer game. It’s simple: players play either 5v5
(team sizes may vary depending on the size of the field and number of players
available). Game play is the same as traditional soccer, with one big difference- there
are no goalies! Players try to score as much as possible and prevent the opposing team
from scoring. The game is played in 3 periods of 10 minutes, substitutes are at the
discretion of the referee.
Sharks and Minnows
Start by nominating 1 player to be the ‘shark’. The shark will stand in the middle of the
gym or field separate from everyone else. Next, have the rest of the players (the
‘minnows’) stand on one side of the field. The object of the game is for the minnows to
get across the gym/field without getting “caught” by the sharks. If a minnow is caught,
then it becomes a shark as well. Minnows continue to cross from side to side dodging
the sharks. The last minnow to get caught, wins!
Several hoops are set up on the ground in the field of play. The music is turned on, and
the players walk around the hoops. When the music stops, the players race to stand in
the center of a hoop. The player left standing is taken out of the game. Last player left in
the game, wins!

2. Warm up and stretch if you haven’t already.
3. Go to the part of the track where you will begin your leg of the relay.
4. If you are starting the relay, simply relax and wait for the gun to go off.
