Players:  Two teams of 5-10 per group.  No poles. 

Equipment: Stadium.  Two ropes or hula hoop or containers.  20 or more colorful tennis balls.  

Setup:  Spread balls out randomly on one side of a stadium, place the nest/rope/hula hoops on the other end separated by six feet approximately.

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.
