Skills

Set Up:

  • Children spread out in a line facing the coach

Description:

Before starting the game, go through the running teaching points and have the children demonstrate them while on the spot.

Firstly practice ‘hip to lip’ arms, then practice landing on the front of the foot, have children point out which part of the foot they land on, then practice high knees and looking straight ahead while running on the spot.

The coach stands in front of the children and does commands with them. On coach’s command, the children respond with the appropriate action:

  • Play: run forwards
  • Pause: freeze on the spot in a crazy pose
  • Rewind: run backwards
  • Fast forward: sprint to a landmark (e.g. tree)
  • Stop: do 5 star jumps
  • Record: jog on the spot
  • Search for a show: sidestep in direction coach indicates
  • Change shows: turn and run in opposite direction

Variations:

  • Change the length of time between commands
  • Let a child do the commands
  • Come up with a new command
  • Finish with running relay races or a game of Rats and Rabbits

Teaching Points:

Running

  • Hip to lip – arms are bent and travel from a child’s hip to their lip
  • Hands closed lightly – like holding a small bird
  • Eyes up
  • High knees
  • Land on the ball of the foot
