Welcome to the last nine weeks of the school year. We will be starting the nine weeks with a Team Sport called "Speedball." This game combines some skills from soccer, football, and basketball. Skills you will learn are:
* dribbling a soccer ball with your feet
* one- and two-foot lifts of a soccer ball
* soccer-style throw-in
* trapping and passing a ball with your feet
* throwing a ball to a moving target
Soccer players will recognize most of these skills, but everyone will be able to do them with just a little practice. At the end of the unit, and after much practice, you will have an evaluation consisting of a skill check-off of the items listed above. The weather can be changeable at this time of year so be sure to dress appropriately. It is easier to have a sweat shirt or jacket that you can take off if you get too warm. Be prepared for class each day with the proper clothing. Since we will be outside, those sensitive to the sun should be protected with sunscreen.
