Training with kids and parents involved

Hi, This week I'm planning an extra fun training session for my U9's. After an all day carnival on the weekend, I thought having the parents join in our session could be fun. Has anybody done this and got any good ideas for games that would work for the kids and parents - any ideas for fun ways to modify the rules for a full court game that would even up the girls and parent's skills would be appreciated too. Thanks in advance.

i have done a parents vs kids game as a fun training session.  kids dont have to worry about 3ft as the parents are heaps taller, and contacting the parents are fine...lol  we had mixed teams and parents could play with or against their parents.  the parents had to throw to a child (this actually became a difficult rule and one i would not repeat).  it was all about fun in the end, so i wouldnt focus too much on rules, as the kids and parents will be having too much of a laugh to worry.  enjoy it.
