Octopus Tag -2 lines defined about 20 yards apart on the soccer field. The
lines are the "shores" and the "ocean" is the area in between.
One person is
selected to be the "Octopus". The Octopus wanders around the ocean while the
rest of the players are swimmers standing on the shore behind one of the goal
The object of the game is for the swimmers to cross to the other
shore without getting caught by the Octopus. Swimmers dash across the water
when the Octopus yells "Octopus" .
