Race around the track for partner fitness fun.
Create a large oval randomly placing fitness and stacking spots along with sets of Speed Stacks cups in the center of the activity area. Pair off stackers and designate one as the Pit Crew member (inside the oval) and one as the Driver (outside of the oval).
On the ‘go’ signal, the Drivers race around the perimeter of the oval performing a predetermined locomotor movement while Pit Crew members stack a predetermined stacking pattern. On the instructor’s “Pit Stop” signal, the Drivers find their partner Pit Crew and switch roles. During the race the instructor calls out different stacking patterns for the Pit Crew to perform and alternate locomotor movements for the Drivers.
Ensure that students on the inside circle and outside circle are at least 6’ apart. Remind students that if they pass another student to make sure they make a wide pass around that student. When students switch roles, make sure each student is using their own cups.
SEL helps strengthen the mind-body connection and center mental, social, and emotional health along with physical health.
