Territory

Territory

Territory Games are activities that involve controlling an object, keeping it away from opponents and moving it into position to score. Both offensive and defensive players share the same playing area as they work to prevent the other team from scoring. By playing these games, participants will learn the key skills and tactics for games such as Soccer, Handball, Ultimate Frisbee, Football, Basketball, Hockey, Goalball, Wheelchair Basketball and Lacrosse.
