Three-Way Soccer Game
This Game should be done Outside.
3 soccer balls
6 cones to mark goals
Divide scouts into three groups, using patrols if possible.
Lay out play area in the shape of a triangle with equal sides. If you use a football field, the goal line can be one side and the opposite corner would be the center of the 45 yard line.
Mark three goals, one in the center of each side.
Place the three soccer balls in the center of the field.
Scouts from each team can be any place on the field.
On 'GO', scouts try to kick the balls through either opponent's goal while protecting their own.
One point is awarded to the team that scores a goal.
One point is subtracted from the team on which a goal is scored.
When a goal is scored, that ball stays out of play.
When all three balls are out of play, a break occurs and the balls are placed back in the center of the field.
Patrols that are losing can gang up on a dominant patrol.
Rather than using only feet, you can relax the rules and allow throwing of the balls.
Playing with rubber or Nerf balls indoors also works.
