Remember Field Day? What I remember is a bunch of nonsensical, made-up games that was somehow the best day of the year. Mainly because it was a day to get out of school and do something different. So that’s what we did today.
WarmUp: SSH, imperial walkers, Moroccan nightclubs, downward dog, merkins, one-legged mountain climbers, cherry pickers
Game 1: PAX paired into teams for a 200 yard race. To advance down the field the PAX 1 would throw the ball down the field to PAX 2 and run ahead to catch it. PAX 2 had to complete 3 burpees before throwing to PAX 1. Then repeat. If dropped, both PAX did burpees and moved back 10 yards.
Game 2: Similar to game 1. But 100 yards long, and replace running with a bear crawl.
Game 3: we won’t speak about game 3. Sometimes you have to modify as necessary.
Game 4: PAX split into 2 teams in the corners of the end zone. Cones and balls of various sorts were placed at the 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards lined. To retrieve a ball or cone, PAX had to complete 10 burpees, 20 sit ups, 30 Bonnie Blair’s, or 40 merkins, respectively. Most cones/balls wins.
And Game 5: keeping teams 1 vs 2, pax were split into a grid and required to stay in their box, for a round of bear/crab soccer, alternating between bear and crab for each score. To keep it lively, 2 or 3 balls were in play at a time.
Mary: penguin crunches, American hammers, WW2s, toy soldiers
COT: there’s been a lot of nonsense this week, so we added a little nonsense of our own. But with a healthy reminder of what F3 means, and not forgetting that we are leaders and need to be good role models for our kids and our community.
