Field Day Fun: The Top 3 Games Voted by Coordinators!

Hey there, field day enthusiasts! Remember that recent newsletter email we sent out polling field day coordinators about their all-time favorite games? Well, the results are in! But first, a big congratulations to Leslie from Thomas Jefferson Elementary in Louisa County Virginia.  Leslie was the winner of the Duffle Bag & Custom Hoodie sweepstakes. Congratulations Leslie!

We asked coordinators to pick their top three games from a list, and the responses flooded in faster than kids racing toward the ice cream truck. And without further ado, drumroll, please…

Here are the top three games that stole the show:

  1. Tug of War (69%)

Ah, the classic test of strength and teamwork! Tug of War reigns supreme, capturing a whopping 69% of the votes. It’s no surprise really. There’s something about the adrenaline rush of pulling with all your might against the opposing team, toes digging into the grass, and determination written all over your face. It’s a battle royale of epic proportions and everyone wants a piece of the action!

  1. Obstacle Course (55.2%)

In second place, we have the adrenaline-pumping Obstacle Course, snagging an impressive 55.2% of the votes. A maze of tires to weave through, hurdles to leap over, and ropes to climb—all against the clock. It’s a test of agility, speed, and quick thinking. Simply a field day staple!

  1. Sack Race (34.5%)

And rounding out our top three is the charmingly nostalgic Sack Race, bouncing into third place with 34.5% of the votes. There’s just something magical about hopping your way to victory in a potato sack, the wind in your hair, and laughter echoing all around. It’s simple, it’s silly, and it’s downright delightful!

But wait, there’s more! While these three games stole the spotlight, our poll revealed a treasure trove of other beloved field day activities. From 50 Yard Dash to Teacher Dunk Tank, to Sponge Relay races and the Homerun Derby, it’s clear that the spirit of fun knows no bounds when it comes to field day festivities.

So, whether you’re a seasoned field day pro or a newbie looking to join in on the fun, these top three games—and all the other classics—are guaranteed to make your day one to remember. So gather your students, lace up those sneakers, and get ready to play your heart out!

And who knows? Maybe next time, your favorite game will claim the coveted top spot. Until then, let the games begin!
