Fox & Eggs

Goal:  Steal eggs from your opponent without being tagged by the fox, add to your own team nest. 

Players:  Two teams 3 – 6/team.  No poles. 

Equipment: Large Stadium.  Two ropes or hula hoops.  20 or more colorful tennis balls.  Timer. 

Setup:  Place equal numbers of tennis balls in each rope circle or hula hoop.  Skiers start at their own nests.

Rules:  Skiers may not make contact or block opposing team’s skiers.  Start a timer for 5 -10min.  Upon go, skiers race from their own nest to the opposing team’s nest to grab one ball.  They return to their own nest and repeat.  A coach or designated Fox randomly tags skiers at which they must return their ball to the opposing team’s nest and start over.  

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank to all of the athletes from the Fondeurs Laurentides cross country ski club for their time and enthusiasm in participating in the creation of these videos, filmed in the Laurentians north of Montreal, Quebec.
