Area: Gym or field with marked
Choose one person to be the caller.
Teach everyone the meaning of the
Roll Call - players run
right end of the field and stand with arms straight down at their sides.
Inspection - players run to the
left end of the field and salute.
In the Galley - players run to
the middle line. They stand with arms straight out to their sides, horizontal
to the ground.
Shipwreck - players must pair up
and sit on the floor with feet touching. Players hold hands and rock back
and forth like they are rowing.
Man Overboard - player pair up.
One player gets down on all fours. The other player gently places his knee
on the back of the first player. He then puts his hand over his eyes as
if he is looking over the side of the boat.
Hit the Deck - players fall to
the ground in push-up position.
Hurricane - players must get their
whole bodies off the ground. (This is where creativity comes in to play.)
The caller shouts one of the
calls. Players must do whatever the call tells them to do.
This game is most exciting when
the caller shouts one command after another without waiting until everyone
completes the first call.
