Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Jumping Jack Tag
Everybody is it. The goal is to tag as many other players as possible before they tag you. If a player gets tagged, they must stop and do 10 jumping jacks. They can continue playing the game and tagging others.
After 30 seconds, stop the class and declare, “everybody is it.” That puts the entire class back in play.

Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
Serves: Power (Drive) “2” • Position in service zone from which serve is delivered. • Stroke action when delivering (hitting) the serve. • Flight patterns of the ball during the serve. • Follow through action after stroking the serve. • Movement pattern to center court position after served ball crosses Short Line?
Practice Take this time to practice with a focus on serves. Give servers 3-5 repetitions whether their serve is “in or out.”
Demonstrate the different types. Place students in safe area on court for demonstration.
Use a management game to make groups of four. Assign four students to go to each court.
Closing Activity (5 Minutes)
Two parallel lines are established at opposite ends of the playing area. Two groups of three players form a chain with joined hands and occupy the center. The players with free hands on either end of the chain do the tagging. All other players line up on one of the parallel lines. The players in the center call “Come on over,” and players cross from one line to the other. The chains try to tag the runners. Anyone caught joins the chain. When the chain grows to six players, it divides into two groups of three players.
