Sandy Spring Friends School



Morley Games

Former SSFS faculty member Barry Morley created cooperative team games with fun names such as Friedelfrappe, Frazleerham, Brindledorph, Hoop-a-Doop and Nurdleybawl in the 1960s and 70s as a way for our small, growing student population to participate in team sports. Although the School is now large enough to field more traditional team sports, SSFS students still enjoy these fun and cooperative team sports. Morley Games are offered as a PE course in the Upper School, and students from all divisions traditionally play Morley Games together in the afternoon of Community Day.
