1. Side Straddle

2. Games

2.1. Jump Rope Relay

2.1.1. Jump Rope Relay Relay races foster competition among teams, which increases motivation and makes them a good game to play with kids and adults alike. To play, divide your group into two teams. Each team lines up at the starting line. Give the first player in each team a jump rope. When the relay race starts, the first players from each team jump rope toward the finish line, turn around and return to the starting line. Pass the jump rope to the next player and continue until one team completes the race. The first to finish is the winner. http://healthyliving.azcentral.com

2.2. Helicopter

2.2.1. Helicopter Helicopter is a jump rope game that eliminates the need for teams and each player is on his own. To play, one person grasps one handle of the jump rope. The remaining participants form a circle around him. The player with the jump rope lays it out on the floor and spins in a circle. As the opposite handle of the jump rope passes the players, they must jump over it. A player who trips or is hit with the jump rope is eliminated. The final standing player is the winner and becomes the helicopter spinner. http://healthyliving.azcentral.com
