Teams of 8 will compete in a single elimination bracket format. The winning team must pull the losing team 5 yards so the rope marker crosses the line. Winning teams from each bracket will participate in the final tug of war at the end of the day.
Teams of 6 will travel through physical and mental obstacles, one at a time. Once all 6 members have completed the course, they will all put together the tangram. Teams with the shortest time will be awarded points for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place.
Teams will consist of 8 participants, with 3 team members standing in 3 different hula hoops. The other 5 teammates will stand behind a cone and will have 5 throws to a teammate in any of the hula hoops. Each hula hoop is worth different point values and the ball must be caught to earn points. The teams with the most points in each group will be awarded points for 1st, 2nd, 3rd.
All teams will need to complete 20 lengths. Depending on team sizes, this may mean certain team members will have to compete more than once to make up the distance. In those cases, they cannot run back to back. Each participant will run 25 yards down and 25 yards back. Once they complete the 50 yards, they will pass a baton to their teammate and continue until all teammates have gone. Team with shortest time will be awarded points for 1st, 2nd, 3rd
Teams of 10 will each row a total of 3000 meters. If a team does not have 10 members, someone will have to go twice but can’t be back to back. Each person must row 300m. Once they complete it, they switch places with the next teammate and continue until the team has rowed 3000m. Teams with shortest time will be awarded points for 1st, 2nd, 3rd.
2 teams of 6 people each will have 3 pinnies. One team member per team will run and place the pinnie down in a spot. Once the pinnie is placed, the team member will run back and tag their next teammate to do the same thing. If all pinnies are used and there is no tic tac toe, team members must move one pinnie on the board.
10 person teams will divide into 4 hula hoops arranged around the basket, 2 people per hoop with 2 team members on the sideline to help with retrieving the balls. Each hula hoop partner will alternate taking shots on the basket for 2 minutes. Teams with the most baskets after each round will receive 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for points.
Teams will consist of 8 people. Each team will send one team member into the center of the field to get one of the many soccer balls and then try to shoot it into their team’s goal. Once one teammate has made their kick, they will run back to high-five the next teammate to repeat until no soccer balls are left in the center. Teams with the most goals after each round will receive 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for points.
