-Mise en place:

  • Place participants on the court in a scattered formation and identify one player as being the “IT.”


  • At the signal to begin the IT tries to tag the other players.

  • When a player is tagged she stands with his feet spread at least shoulder width apart.

  • If another player can slide between the legs the frozen player is free again.

  • When a player steps outside the boundary he is frozen until the end of the game since no other player can go outside the boundaries to thaw the player out.

  • If the IT freezes everyone then the first player that was frozen becomes the new IT.

-Questions et notes:

  • Safety considerations:

    • It is helpful for players to have been taught how to dive in volleyball. If a net is up be sure posts are properly padded.

    • You may want to give the ITs a pool noodle or foam tube to tag people with so that no-one is inadvertently pushed over while being tagged. 

  • Instructional tips:

    • If the IT is finding it too difficult to freeze everyone, appoint a second IT. 

  • Variations:          

    • Frozen Ball Tag: Same as Frozen Tag except that the IT gently throws a ball against a player to freeze the player. If you suspect the throws are too hard then have the IT throw with their non-dominant hand. Soccer Frozen Tag: Played the same way as Frozen Tag but frozen players are freed by another player dribbling a ball between their legs.

  • As a cool-down:

    • Without an IT have players dive through the legs of 3 different players. When all players have completed their dives, the team is dismissed.
