Shomria Ball / Mosh Ball / Lucille Ball

How to Play:

The game is played in a large field with many players and is based on havoc and insanity. There needs to be a minimum of 2 teams and one large ball (volleyball or soft ball is best), but more is better - 3 teams and 3 balls seems to work well. Each team has a goal with a goal tender from their own team. A goal consists of three benches set up to form a triangle. The goalie stands is the only one allowed in the triangle and is not allowed to leave it. No one may stand on the benches. Each goalie has a milk crate (or some other type of box) with which to catch the ball. A goal is scored by getting a ball into your own goal. The point of the game is to get as many goals as possible while keeping the other team(s) from scoring. The ball is called "dead" if it goes out of bounds or after each goal is scored. For a ball to come back into play a Madriach (in the interest of fairness) must kick the ball high in the air. The rules of the game with regards to checking are that you may not push or shove anyone who is physically smaller than you, but you can to someone larger. It is acceptable however for someone who is larger to pick up the smaller person and run with them. This game is a Hashomer favorite in North America. One popular way of splitting teams is by place of residence, for example the camp in NY splits the teams into 3: NYC, New Jersey, and Other.
