Jump rope practice
- Start with a rope on the floor and practice hopping over it with two feet at the same time.
- Tie a rope to a stationary object and slowly swing it back and forth while athletes try hopping over with two feet at the same time.
- If appropriate, have athletes try to swing a rope over their own heads, pause, and then jump over with two feet. Or, try using a hoola hoop.
4 Station Relay: Set up four cones in a diamond pattern. Divide the class into four groups and line them up behind each of the four cones. The first player in line at cones 1 and 3 start with a baton. On “Go”, players holding the baton run and hand off to the player at the next cone before going to the end of that line. The batons and players advance around the cones until one baton catches the other or time is called. You can vary methods of traveling between cones (skip, bear crawl, backpedal, etc). With a smaller group, you can divide the class in half at cones 1 and 3 and have them run past cones 2 and 4 on their way to the other side.
