Cooperative PE activities serve as both a great way to help students get to know each other, and as practice in communication and teamwork. The Cooperative Golf PE Lesson Plan requires students to utilize upper body strength to practice the underhand serving pattern as they work as a team to score points by getting the OMNIKIN® ball into a hoop. Check out the full instructions and the supplies list for the Kin-Ball® Cooperative Golf PE class activity.
Kin-Ball® Cooperative Golf SPARK PE Class Activity
To begin the activity, create small (15×15 paces) activity areas with 1 Kin-Ball for each team of 6 students. Have each group of 6 separate into 2 teams of 3 students, with each team receiving a hoop.
The serving team stands 10 paces away from the receiving team with the ball in their hoop. One player from the serving team will punch the ball into the air in the direction of the receiving team. The receiving team works together to move and catch the airborne ball in their empty hoop. Then the roles reverse as the receiving team becomes the serving team.
To make the activity more challenging or competitive, have teams keep track of how many “hole-in-1” catches they make, or how many serves they can get in before the end of the activity.
To play Kin-Ball with your class, you’ll need:
- 4 Spot Markers per 6 Students
- 2 Hoops per 6 Students
- 1 OMNIKIN UltraBall or Kin-Ball (36” or larger) per 6 Students
