How it Works

Two teams face each other, about 3 to 4 metres apart (an athlete should be at least 2 metres from the nearest ‘safety’ wall.) One team is the Rabbits and the other is the Roosters. Call one team’s name. The team then sprints / chases the other team to their wall. Those who are tagged before they reach their safety wall join the other team.
