Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet
This Steal the Ball activity also includes:

Put all the balls (same type of ball) in the middle of the basketball court. One person from each team must run to the center of the court and bring back the ball to their team's hula hoop. If using soccer balls, players must dribble; volleyballs, players must volley; basketball, players must dribble; and footballs players can throw the balls. Then the next person goes. The object of the game is to collect as many balls as possible. Once all the balls are gone from the middle, players can steal from other teams.
