Blind Man’s Ball
York Adams Area Council

Gather one or two of as many different sports balls as you can find.  For each one, get a large enough covered box into which the ball will fit.  Cut hand-holes in the side of each box and cover the holes with “curtains” so the players can’t see into the box.  Label the boxes for identification (e.g., 1, 2., 3. etc.).  Have each person feel the ball in the box and figure out what type it is.

Team Logo Geography Quiz
York Adams Area Council

Using the quiz sheet found at the back of this section, ask everyone to identify the cities to which the different sports logos are “home.”


Gathering Activity
Crossroads of America

Set the room up so the boys can demonstrate the different fitness events they have done in the last month.


Crossroads of America

Use pieces of paper that are cut in the shape of a football or a basketball and decorated with the seams usually found on the ball you choose to use
