Watch it in Action!
The Ultimate Skillastics After School Package has everything from the after school package and it comes with equipment as well so if you don’t know what it comes with the after school package, please go back to that page on your catalog use the QR code to find out all the fantastic things that come in that package. So you get everything from that package and you also get equipment with the ultimate package. What is that equipment? You get 24 soccer balls, 24 basketballs, 24 volleyballs, 24 tennis racquet, 144 quick start tennis balls, now with all the equipment they are all color-coded, so each team will have equipment that matches their team color, and why do you do that? Because we wanted to stop those disagreements that kids have about who’s equipment is who’s. Now in addition to that, the quick start foam tennis balls are not obviously your normal tennis balls they have foam consistency a little bit larger than a tennis ball, reason why we do that is so that when the children are playing and learning tennis, the tennis ball move a little bit slower so therefore the children have a higher success rate and a positive experience as they learn tennis. So with all these equipment and everything that comes in that Skillastics After School Package you are setup to have a fantastic physical activity program. So let’s have some fun and get these kids moving.
I’m gonna share with you how the celebrated skillastics technique works. You lay this oversized mat in the middle of a plain area. You take the same color dice and beanbag markers and lay them on the same color start button on the oversized mat. You take a group of kids and divide them into six teams, assigning each team of color, and then you put the teams away from this big mat. Each team gets a miniature mat in their team area as a reference.
When the kids are in their team area, you have them number off so they know how to take turns. The way it starts is you just say, go or turn on music, and the first child from each team comes running to their color. So six kids come running to their color, they roll their dice, whatever they roll, they land on an activity they look at, look at the activity, run back to their group, point it out on the miniature mat, and everybody in that group has to do that activity together.
How many repetitions do they do? Well on each activity, there’s three different colored numbers on the bottom. They represent beginning, intermediate, or advanced repetitions. So before you even start as the instructor, you would say, today group, you’re gonna do the blue amount. So the kids know that whenever they land on an activity, they’re gonna do the blue amount of repetitions. So you’ve got six teams moving independently, but everybody moving, everybody active at one time. Now the worst thing you can do is just lay this out and say play, because the kids are not familiar with the activities yet.
So each of our skillastics activity kits include task cards, and in our instructional manuals, we have so many lead up games and activities that will familiarize the kids with the activities prior to play. Now each of our skillastics activity kits come in these convenient carriage bags. Very easy to store, very easy to transport. This is the foundation of the Skillastics program and all the variations that are a part of it.
