Dunk Effect: Youth Group Games

Quick Overview:

Not only does this game look awesome but it is so fun to play! Check you memory and skills all in the same game!

Supplies You’ll Need:

1. Hamper Hoops. You can find these hoops HERE
2. PVC Pipes. These will be the supports that the hoops are attached to.
3. Pipe Bases. You will want to attach the pipes to something so they stand straight up.
4. Basketballs. We used “fake snowballs” that we had laying around, you could use playpen balls or mini basketballs if you have them.




Prepare you poles. 3 PVC poles each tall enough to hold up three nets.
Label each hoop a different sound effect with tape and sharpie
Set those on the front of the stage
Have a bucket of all the mini basketballs in the back of the room.
Tape a line about 5-6 feet away from where each contestant will shoot their basketballs from.



Game Play:

We created a website (check it out at shine.ms/soundboard) that allows for sound effects to be played.
Have the person running sound select four random sound effects.
Start your 60 second countdown
Now in a 2v2 relay style game one person at a time from each team must try and make as many baskets into the hoops that correspond with the sound effects that just sounded.
The object of the game is to get as many balls in the hoops as possible that associate with each sound effect.
