    Love this!
    I have a class of 2nd – 5th graders that started as speed/agility and now the last half of class is dodge ball. They learn so much from playing games.
    thanks for sharing!

    Hi Jaco,

    You can purchase the certifications whenever you would like, however, you cannot attempt the YFS2 exam until you have successfully completed YFS1, nor can you take the YFS3 exam before completing YFS2.

    Great examples of work for that age group,

  7. Awesome stuff!! Can you explain how the letter tracing game works? Sounds like a great drill.

    There are many versions of this activity. The one I speak of hear is:
    Have your athletes stand in an athletic stance. Have them trace letters with one hand over the as big as they can. Have them pretend that the bottom of the “paper” is the floor and the top of the letter is as high as they can reach. Make sense?

    There is no right or wrong hear. The goal, in most cases, is active ROM, body awareness and movement exploration.
