To crack a code by carrying out various tasks


You can play this game with any 4 exercises you can think of.

1. Divide the group into two or three. These are the teams that will do the assignments.
2. The trainer makes a code of ten digits e.g. (24 32 14 21 33)
3. The players will do the exercises in a particular order. For example; they think the first digit is 3, so they will do exercises 3. When they have done them, they will go to the trainer and he will say whether the number is right or wrong. If the number is right, they try to guess the next number. If the number is wrong they have to do another exercise, for example exercise four, to guess the correct number.

Exercise 1: Push-ups 5 timesExercise

The players are divided into equal teams and lined up on the serving area of the same half of the game, with each team having a passer and a catcher on the opposite side.

  • The first player of a team serves.
  • After passing and catching, catcher throws the ball to the next server (or becomes a server himself).
  • Catch joins server, passer becomes catcher
  • etc

  • If emphasis is on service: wrong serve means again.
  • If emphasis is on passing: wrong pass means stay put (again).

If the teams are small, it is nice to have everyone serve two or three times.

  • Minimum of 6 players
  • As many balls as there are teams


(the net must not be hung up yet in this exercise!)

  • Divide all children in pairs and each child lying on one side of the field. The children on side 1 lie on their stomachs and the children on side 2 on their backs.
  • All children from side 1 run to the other side and lay down next to their partner on their back.
  • As soon as this is done, the partner of side 2 can run to the other side, quickly lie down on his/her belly, touch the ground with his/her nose and run back to his/her own place. There lie down again on the back
  • The child who lies on the ground on the back must now return to his/her own place.

Who is first back on base?

  • this is an exercise in a kind of game form. In the opposite field a bench (or cupboard) has to be placed with a number of pylons standing on it.

    • at the mv position (2);
    • at the left front (side) position (3);
    • 2 children behind the bench/cabinet to catch the balls (4);
    • after play passing from 1 to 2 to 3 to 1
  • child 1 gives the ball to the trainer who passes the ball to child 2
  • child 2 gives a setup on the outside to child 3
