Bounce Tag

Students Whole class

Equipment 1 playground ball, netball or basketball per student. Bibs or coloured bands

Area Hard surface open space


Students spread throughout the area, 1 or more wear a bib to indicate they are taggers. On a signal, taggers chase other students who all bounce a ball, aiming to tag as many students as possible. Give the taggers a certain amount of time they can tag the others. When tagged, students stand and bounce a ball on the spot until they are ‘released’ by another student. Release occurs by touching or circling the tagged student. Repeat several times, alternating students who are taggers.


Students bounce with their non-preferred hand. On a signal, students swap the hand they are bouncing with
