Game Description

Played like ordinary football except the Scouts must stay on the chair. The goal keepers can use their hands but everyone else must use only their feet.

The game is ideal for slowing down after a fast game. It is safe for the larger boys to play with the smaller ones as there is no physical contact. It also removes the edge those boys good at football have. Everyone is equal.

Every three or four minutes allow 10 seconds for chairs to be moved. This often leads to too many defenders or forwards. As a team game it builds the ideal of working as a team with everyone taking responsibity for the teams success.
