Sticky Toffee

Alternative names: --
Objective: To practice being mindful of what’s going on around you; to practice skating in chaotic situations.
Typical length of drill: 5-10 minutes
Materials needed: --
Skill level required: This is a non contact game, open to all levels.
Description: This game is a variation of the original tag game.

This game is played for a set period of time. Tagger(s) are elected at the start of the game. The skaters skate in a predetermined direction. When a skater is tagged they make their way to the nearest wall. They stand next to it with an arm straight out touching the wall. This creates a gap that a free skater can skate through to free the tagged skater. The taggers are switched approx. once a minute through this game to keep the skaters on their toes. Someone will announce things like “All skaters with red helmets are taggers”, “All skaters with white wheels are taggers”, “All girls are taggers” etc. However the latter in an RD league might be grossly unfair for the handful of boys playing. A tagged person immediately becomes free when the taggers change. 

During the last round, when a skater gets tagged they are removed from the game, and the last skater is the winner. 

A single whistle will start the game. Four short whistle blasts will stop the game.
