• 10 hula hoops.
  • Class set of dodgeballs.
  • Cones.
  • Pinnies to split kids into teams.
  • 10 bowling pins (or anything else that can be set up inside the hula hoops to be knocked down).


  • Split the kids into 2 even teams.
  • Divide the gym in half, length-wise, using the cones.
  • Lay out the hula hoops, as in the picture, and put a pin in the middle of each one.
  • The object of the game is to knock over all of the other team’s pins before they knock over yours.
  • You are not allowed to cross the center line.
  • NO ONE is allowed inside the hula hoops, and you can only ever have one person guarding a pin/hoop at a time.
  • Regular dodgeball rules apply (no throwing above the shoulders, no throwing to hurt someone else).
  • If you get hit with a dodgeball by someone on the other team, then you must step off to the side (see the picture), and wait until someone from your team knocks over a pin from the other team. When this happens, every eliminated player from that team can come back into the game.
  • Once a pin is knocked over, it cannot be set back up.
  • If a pin is knocked over by accident (either with a body or a ball, by someone on your own team), it still counts as being knocked over. Which means that anyone out of the game on the other team can come right back in.
  • First team to lose all of their pins, loses.
