Type/Purpose: Ball/Throwable Object, Event/Activity

Play:
This event is much the same as a Crazy Olympics except you use only basketballs. You may have relays, best shot contests, or crazy races using a basketball.
Some suggestions include:

  • Free Throws (best out of 10)
  • Dribbling relay (race down and back-pass to next person)
  • Crazy shot (shoot a basket in a crazy way and make it)
  • Dribble between the legs relay (those who can do this easily must dribble with “opposite hand”)
  • “HORSE” contests (or PIG, DORK, etc.)
  • Throw for distance (boys and girls divisions)
  • Basketball spin on a flat surface (winner is the one who can spin for the longest period of time)
  • Basketball bounce on head relay (use a “nerf” or playground ball and race down and back only bouncing the ball on head)
  • 2 person bounce pass relay (2 players run and bounce pass, down and back, and pass off to next pair)
  • Half court shot contest or farthest shot made.

These are just ten ideas to use for your Basketball Blitz night. You can make up your own games and “have a ball!”

Teachable Moments: It is possible to apply the following Scriptures about sacrifice and working hard toward a goal to this activity: Philippians 3:12, Hebrews 10:32, Romans 12:1, 1 Corinthians 9:25, 2 Timothy 2:5.
