5 Fun Basketball Games for Kids

1. Knock Out

Knock Out game requires 2 basketballs and 2 or more player.The players form a line at the free throw line with the first two receiving basketballs. The first player shoots, and if he or she misses, the second player can knock out the first player by making the basket before the first player is able to corral the rebound and put his or her ball in the basket. If the first player is able to make the shot before the second player, they pass it to the next player in line, who then tries to knock out the second player while the first player returns to the end of the line. The game goes on until all but one player is knocked out.

2.Around the World

This game requires atleast 2 players and 1 basketball. The mechanics of the game is to go around the world by making consecutive shots from predetermined spots around the court.

The first player must make a layup, followed by a shot between the basket and the free throw line, a free throw, a 20 foot shot from the wing, a 3 point shot, and a shot from half court. Once this is accomplished, the player must make every shot again on his or her return to the basket. The game ends with the layup.

3. Firing Squad

This is a similar of Around the World, but instead of taking turns, all players shoot at the same time until a player has made a basket from each predetermined spot on the court.

4. Golf

It is a game for kids,where golf teaches young players to shoot from spots all around the court. The game requires 2 or more players and 1 basketball. The first player begins on the first hole, a predetermined spot where he or she must shoot. If the player makes the shot on the first attempt, the score for that “hole” is one. If the player misses the shot, they must shoot from where they grabbed the rebound. The score for that hole is the number of shots it took the player to make the basket. Just like a golf course, you can do this from 18 different spots on the court. The lowest score wins.

5. Musical Basketballs

This game is ike musical chairs, but with basketballs, this game requires one ball per player and a source of music. Put all the balls in a circle and have kids, similar to musical chairs, walk around the balls while music plays. Once the music stops, the players grab a basketball and shoot. Once a player makes a basket, he sits down to show that he’s finished. The last player standing is out.
