Sticks, shinpads and gumshields needed. Traditional hockey game with a scoring gate rather than a goal. Goals are scored by dribbling the ball through the game of cones. Progressions/Constraints to Consider: Smaller/ larger scoring area Replace hockey ball with a tennis ball Change the shape of the pitch and/or scoring area Add in 'joker players' who are always attacking and/or defending Pyramid scoring system (1st goal = 1 point, second goal = 2 points, 3rd goal = 3 points etc etc) Adding in a bonus goal for specific acts (eg: forehand passes)
