  • Knock Out - July 18th, 25th - Knockout is a simple game to play. To start, everyone faces the basket in a single line, one behind the other. The first player in line shoots the ball. If they make it, they go to the back of the line. If they miss, they have to get their own rebound and put the ball in the basket before the person who was behind them makes their shot. If they can’t do that, then they are out of the game. The game keeps going until there is only one person left.
  • Horse - July 26th - Have you ever heard of the game “Simon Says?” During Simon Says, the leader tells you to do something. HORSE is like Simon Says, but with a basketball. In HORSE, you use your imagination to create crazy shots. To begin the game, pick a player to go first. That player gets to do anything they want before shooting. If they want to spin around 5 times and then hop up and down before shooting, they can do it. They make the rules! If they hit their shot, the other players have to do the exact same thing. But if they miss, the next player gets to make up their own wacky shot for the others to try. Any player that can’t make the first person’s shot gets the letter H. Everyone keeps playing the game and making up crazy shots until someone misses enough times to spell out the word HORSE. The player who does not spell HORSE is the winner!

  • Around the world - July 19th - Around the World is the easiest game to play and is great for improving your shooting skills. To begin, pick five different spots on the basketball court. The first player to start the game gets to shoot five times from each spot. That means each player gets 25 total shots. When one player is done shooting, the next player goes. Whichever player makes the most shots is the winner. It’s that simple!
