Capture the Flag


A classic active game where everyone runs, tags and laughs while they try to Capture the Flag. 


Equipment Needed:

Tape, flag or towel.


How To Play:

Divide the group into two teams. Each team starts on opposite sides of the gym with a line down the middle separating the two sides. An area at opposite ends of the gym are marked with tape and the flag is placed in the middle. The goal is to capture the other team’s flag and return it to their side of the gym. A player is safe when they are in their own end or when they are inside the opposing team’s flag area. Once a player steps into the opposing teams’ area, they can be tagged and must stand frozen. The only way a person can become unfrozen is to be tagged by a teammate.

This game can be adapted to any size area such as a ball field.
