HOW TO SET UP
Auskickers need to spread out, wearing bibs sticking out of the back of their clothing like a tail.
On "Go!" Auskickers steal as many tails as they can from other adding stolen tails to the back of their clothing (chasing) and keep their own tail safe (by dodging).
Once an Auskickers has two tails, they give their next tail to someone without a tail, to help them learn about team work.
The game ends when everyone has swapped tails a few times.
Ask if anyone managed to keep their tails!
Then start again!
A change to this game is another called "Rucks & Rovers"
Auskickers from parallel lines facing the coach whi is at the front. One line is "rucks" and the other is "rovers". Everyone wears a tail.
To start, call out either "rucks" or "rovers". whoever gets called, that line of Auskickers sprint to the edge of the playing area where it's safe while the other side chases to tag them!
Either rovers chase rucks, or rucks chase rovers and the team being chased get their tails stolen. Sometime pretend you're going to say "rucks" or "rovers" but instead trick with aother R word, for example, "rabbits" or "rock'n'roll"! This keeps the Auskickers on their toes!
To keep the Auskickers safe, make sure no one tries to tackle another player while trying to steal their tail.
