Crazy Legs is a fitness game you can play in small groups with a minimum of equipment. It's also a good leadup game for soccer.

How to Play
Divide your students into one or more groups, with one student per group designated as the "Crazy Legs." The other students form a circle about an arm's length apart.

The Crazy Legs dribbles a ball around the outside of the circle. When ready, he kicks the ball into the circle, touches a player's shoulder and runs around the circle pursued by the player he has touched.

Crazy Legs' job is to reach the empty spot in the ring before the player he has touched can touch her back. In the meantime, the other players kick the ball back and forth inside the circle.

If the Crazy Legs is tagged, the pursuing player becomes the new Crazy Legs. If not tagged, the same player is the Crazy Legs for another turn.

Options
You can make the game even more crazy by using a second ball and an additional Crazy Legs.
