My goal with this blog is to enhance the physical wellness of our youth through uncoventional activities that will peak the interest of children and make lifetime exercise a priority in their lives.

Another Solid Week
With less than the normal amount of kids at St. Mary's this week, we had to modify activities to keep them entertained. Once all of our games were done, all the kids wanted to do was play knockout. As we have all talked about many times, basketball is not what we should be playing every time. This time I took advantage of the situation and modified the game to get more people involved and adding in additional spots to shoot from. This made things different, but the kids still felt like they were getting to do what they wanted. It's times like these that I embrace the chance to try new things on the fly and see how it's going to be when I'm running my own class.
