Game
Play Safe while Moving
This game will reinforce the basic concept that movement is safer than lack of
movement. In the original version we used jump boxes; however cones, along with
many other movements or exercises can be used, such as blocked squats, DSDS,
hurdle hops, push-ups, frog stands, etc. Within an area of at least 10 meters x 10
meters, play a traditional game of tag with trainer/teacher selecting the first player to be
“It.” All other players run from “It” to avoid being tagged and will attempt to complete 3-6
reps of the designated movement at any box or cone. Players must leave the cone after
3-6 reps. Players may not be tagged while completing the ROM for the exercise. Place
the boxes or cones at least 4 feet apart from each other. Discuss with the players that
movement pace must be normal and stalling or stopping does not make them immune
from tagging.
