Based on a New Zealand Maori tribal game called Ki-o Rahi, Rahi-Ball is a large team strategy game that focuses on teamwork and tactics. The playing field consists of a center goal, a defensive circle, an offensive circle, and a neutral zone with 7 Rahi-Ball blue marker posts. Score by throwing the ball into the goal or tapping a marker with the ball.
Your entire class will enjoy playing these strategy games for PE! Set the goal in the center of the playing area with an inner and outer circle surrounding it. Evenly space the 7 Rahi-Ball Markers outside the perimeter of the outer circle. Divide players into 2 equal teams and designate each a color.
Players begin with 3 matching flags attached to their belts. Assign 1 team as offense and the other as defense. Players on defense can play in the inner circle and outside the outer circle, but only 3 defensive players can be in the inner circle at a time. Offensive players can be in all areas except the inner circle. Offensive players attempt to tap the ball on the makers without having a flag removed or to get the ball in the center goal. Players in the outer circle can possess the ball for up to 5 seconds before aiming for the goal or passing to a teammate. If a player loses all his/her flags, the player is now on defense. The first team to score 10 points or the team with more points after a predetermined amount of time wins.
Packs include all the equipment you need to get your class involved for the entire period. Each flag belt measures 30" to 44". Durable nylon belt includes 3 PVC flags that will last for years.
