Healthy August - Ducks: A Swimming Game to Play

Due to educational cuts and the governments period of austerity, nearly 50% of all school aged children are not doing enough exercise. That included those who take part in school P.E. because the time taken for changing, putting out the equipment and lining up for P.E. can take up a large portion of the hour allotted for the lesson and therefore some children are active for less than 30 minutes every day.

The statistics on Summer Holiday Hunger would prove that the luxury of visiting the local sports centre for a swim this summer is total out of the question.

Here at Orchard Training we like to encourage all out learners, in school or out to do an hour of exercise every day to help them stay healthy and if it is free we like it even better.

If you have a pool at home or if you can visit the beach this summer - you can play Ducks.

You will need enough friends and Studdy Buddies to make two equal teams. One team plays offensive and the other defensive.

  • Take up positions at opposite ends of the pool or area.

  • Both teams stand in the water.

  • The Offensive Team are armed with soft rubber balls more small beach balls, the Offensive Team tires to hit the Defensive Team players.

  • An Offensive Team members can retrieve the balls but they must return to the starting position before throwing again.

  • Defensive Team players must get out of the water when hit.

  • After all the members of the Defensive Team are out and out of the pool. Change over the role of each team. The team that stays in the water the longest before being wiped out is the winner.
