A good twist to a popular game without the dangers of the original one, newspaper dodge-ball helps to work on the kids dribbling abilities while keeping them moving, active and engaged.
This game is very simple to teach and learn with the goal in getting the players moving using movement skills as a warm-up. For initial set-up, divide the group into two teams with everyone dribbling a basketball and half the players with newspaper balls in the other hand.
