How it Works

Goal is to try and complete as many cards as possible in the allotted time.
One athlete chooses a card, reads it to the group (or coach explains), then the group completes the challenge.
Cards can be posted or placed aside until the game is over.

*This can also be included in a long run, ride, ski, skate, or other endurance activity for “mini movement” breaks within the longer session.

Applications

Adaptable to any skill or athletic ability that is being trained.

Modifications

Complete a neighbourhood run and have the bag full of “crazy cards”, for example spinning jumping jacks, Ninja jump kicks, and so on.
Every block or two an athlete draws a card for the team to complete before continuing.
