Flag Fury

Difficulty: Intermediate


    A fast paced game that allows players to work on pulling flags and offensive evasion at the same time.

    How to Play

    1. Start the game with every player spread out in a large grid.
    2. When the instructor yells, “Go!” each player will attempt to capture as many flags as they can without having their own flags taken.
    3. When both flags have been removed from a player’s belt they should leave the grid and let the other players continue.
    4. Designate a captured flag area during play, where flags may be placed.  A progression can be to allow only players with flags left to recapture their team’s flags and bring eliminated players back in the game.
    5. The game ends when 2-3 players are left with flags still attached.


    Coaching Notes

    Game Progressions
