Stinky Cheese

Game Description: 
A fast paced dodgeball game focused on teamwork
to move the "stinky cheese" from one end of the gym to the other without being hit with a dodgeball
Game Rules: 
Team 1 starts as the throwers on the sidelines. Team 2 starts as the stinky cheese makers in a line starting at the baseline. Team 2 will send one player at a time across the gym holding on to the stinky cheese (a small ball or object). Team 1 will throw dodge balls at the player running across the gym. If the Team 2 player is hit with a ball he/she must sit down on the ground where they were hit. Once seated, the next player from Team 2 must run towards the seated teammate and grab the stinky cheese and attempt to get further across the gym. If the player is hit before reaching the stinky cheese they must sit. Team 2 will have an allotted time (about 1-2 mins) to try to make it to the other side as many times as possible. Once the time has expired Team 1 and Team 2 will switch roles.
Saftey Considerations: 
Use a marked line or cones to determine a line that throwers must stay behind. Head shots do not count.
