- Only 1 person may use the corkscrew at a time.
The object of the game is to work your way to 1st square and try to get other players out.
- The object of Four Square is to get to square A and remain there by eliminating opponents in squares B-D.
- The squares are lettered A, B, C and D. The serve always starts from square A.
- Players take positions in boxes A, B, C and D.
- The ball is served by dropping it and serving it underhand from the bounce. If the serve hits a line, the server is out. To begin the game, the server hits the ball to square D.
- The player receiving the ball must keep it in play by striking the ball after it has bounced once in his square. He may return the ball from outside of the perimeter. He directs it to another square with an underhand hit.
- Play continues until 1 player fails to return a hit or commits a foul. When someone fouls, the first child in the waiting line enters at square D. all players then advance to fill in the available square.

Knock Out Rules
- 2 equal teams are needed to start the game (one on each side of the net).
- The person throwing the ball must call the name of the person on the opposite team to put them in jail or call "prisoner" to get one of his own teammates out of jail.
- If the ball clears the net and is inside the volleyball (prisoner) court and is caught by a member of the opposing team, no one has to go out and no one is allowed back in.
- If the ball clears the net and is inside the volleyball (prisoner) court but is dropped by a member of the opposing team, the person called goes to "jail" or is "prisoner" was called, 1 teammate of the thrower is set free.
- If the ball hits the net or goes out of bounds, the person who threw the ball must go to jail.
- A ball that hits the line is considered out.
- If there are at least 5 people in jail, the thrower can call "jail break" and all students in the jail line can return to the game if the ball is dropped by a member of the receiving team.
- There are no "whole team" calls.
- If there is only 1 person left on a team, the ball must be thrown directly toward them. If it a good throw and the receiving person drops the ball, the game is over. If the receiver catches the ball, however, the game continues until the last person on a team drops the ball.

- The 1st player shoots a free throw from the free throw line. if they make the shot, they retrieve the ball and pass it to the next person in line. If they miss the shot, they retrieve the ball and continue shooting until they make the shot or their opponent makes a basket first. Once they make the shot or are eliminated, they two hand bounce pass the ball to the next person in line.
- When a player is eliminated (their opponent makes a basket before they do), they stand to the side and wait until the game is over.

- 2 players at a time may play.
- 2 players stand opposite each other in the tetherball circle. All others stand outside the circle.
- The server puts the ball in play by hitting the ball in one direction around the pole. The other player hits the ball the other direction around the pole.
- The first player to wrap the rope completely around the pole is the winner.
- If a player commits a foul during the play, then all play stops and the player making the foul goes to the end of the waiting line. The first player in line then comes inside the circle to be the new player. The new player serves, chooses side and direction to hit the ball.

Service and Play
Both feet must be behind the service line.
No doubles on service.
Serve must bounce on the court and then above the 2 foot line painted on the wall.
No player may catch the ball.
"Poppies" are considered out for the player that hit it.
Interference occurs when a player is blocked from hitting the ball on his turn. If a dispute occurs, the 1st person in line (waiting to play) will be "the judge" and call interference or not. If interference is called by "the judge", the point is taken over. If "the judge" does not call interference, the player claiming interference is out and goes to the end of the line.
Note: Modification for 1st and 2nd Grade - the ball may bounce 2 times after it hits the wall before the player must hit it.
- A ball is in play as long as the 1st bounce is within the court lines.
