Increase cardiovascular endurance during the fitness development.
Improve sand trap shot technique as demonstrated by the instructor.
Refine and “groove” their full swing using a 5-iron.
NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Bean Bag Touch and Go
On signal, run to a beanbag, touch it and run again. Increase challenges with instructions during freeze.
Scattered formation. Establish “Freeze”.
Examples: Touch 5 blue bean bags and sprint; Touch 3 bean bags and skip; Go around 4 beanbags and place a knee on any beanbag when task is completed.
Bean bags are commonly used for juggling.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Students do the best they can at each station within the time limit. This implies that not all youngsters are required to do the same workload. Students differ and their ability to perform fitness workloads varies. Make fitness a personal challenge.
Rope Jumping Push-Ups Agility Run Lower Leg Stretch Juggling Scarves Curl-Ups with Twist Alternate Leg Extension Tortoise and Hare Bear Hug
Conclude circuit training with 2-4 minutes of walking, jogging, rope jumping or other self-paced aerobic activity
Tape alternating segments of silence and music to signal duration of exercise. Music segments (begin at 35 seconds) indicate activity at each station while intervals of silence (10 seconds) announce it is time to stop and move forward to the next station.
Use signals such as start, stop, and move up to ensure rapid movement to the next station.
Ask students to do their personal best they can. Expect workloads to differ.
This activity will increase cardiovascular strength and endurance.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
Sand Trap Shots with Task Sheets
Have students partner up, each with a Task Sheet (see Sheet #8 below). One person is the “doer” while the other person is the “observer”. Observer reads information/instructions to the doer, offers verbal feedback, and places a check in the “yes” or “no” column recording the performance of their partner. Record the date of the practice.
Practice Full Swing using Sheet #7 Task Sheet. Students should still have the Task Sheet from last lesson.
Use Sand Trap Reciprocal Task Sheet 8 working in pairs.
Demonstrate hitting from sand using “Running Long Jump Area”
Complete the task sheet until you are directed to “change roles”. Then, the “doer” becomes the “observer”.
