Smarter than Smoking ModX

Smarter Than Smoking

A special game with special plays!

Its great fun, anyone can play. What's faster than football, more fun than netball, has more goals scored than soccer?

The best game in the world- MODCROSSE: In most sports you only get to whack the ball away from you, in Modcrosse you get to catch the ball, run with it, dodge around opponents and throw to a team mate or shoot on goal.

It's HI-SPEED ACTION: Modcrosse can be played indoors or out, you have defence, offence and midfielders and you can play behind the goals which really put the pressure on the opposition.

SCHOOLS
