This game is physical, play at your own risk...


Break into two evenly sized teams. Teams will stand facing each other holding the hands of their teammates. One team will begin by saying “Red Rover, Red Rover, send _____ over”. Replacing ____ with a player on the opposite team’s name. The player who is called must then run at the other team and try to run through the human chain. If the player can get through they return to their side. If the player is stopped by the team, then they must join the team. The opposite team now calls “Red Rover, Red Rover, send ____ over”.
The game ends when a team only has one player left. The other team is then the winner.

Helpful Hint: if the two teams are close together less injuries will occur.
