Arch Goal Ball

Category: BALL GAMES

_10 to 60 players._

_Playground; gymnasium._

_Basket ball._

The players are divided into groups, and line up in single file in two
or more lines facing a basket ball goal or any substitute. Each line
has a basket ball. At a signal each leader passes the ball backward
overhead, the next player catches it and passes it in the same way,
and so on to the end of the line. When the last player receives the
ball, he runs forward and tries to throw it into the basket, standing
on a line marked from five to ten feet from the goal. He is allowed
but one throw, when he quickly takes his place at the front of his
line (which moves backward one place to make room for him), and at
once passes the ball backward overhead. The last player, in turn, runs
forward, throws for goal, etc. This is repeated until each player in a
line has thrown for the goal. Each goal made scores two points for the
team. The team wins which has the highest score when all of the
players have thrown.

This may also be played on time. Then each player throws until he
succeeds in getting the ball into the basket. The team wins whose last
man finishes first.
