Today, we taught our Individual and Dual Sports class. I really enjoyed this class and concept as too often it’s difficult to gather a group of people together to partake in a sport. My favorite sport is kayak polo; however the number one rule to paddling is that you should never paddle alone.
In saying this, I had no idea how many individual sports were out there! Bowling, Archery, Kayaking, Rowing, Boccee, Bodybuilding, Boomerang, Boxing, Canoeing, Cycling, Croquet, Darts, Diving, Dance, Fencing, Figure skating, Golf, Gymnastics, Knife Throwing, Pilates, MMA, Sailing, Skiing, Shooting, Snowboarding, Squash, Skateboarding, Swimming, Yoga… and the list goes on and on…
It’s good to be reminded that there are still a variety of activities that we can take part in to maintain our physical literacy and set personal goals for development without having to find several people to be involved at the same time.
One thought on “November 18th – Individual and Dual Sports”
I love the idea of individual sports. Where all you need is yourself and some equipment (sometimes that’s even unnecessary!) . My biggest form of motivation is when I actually participate in activities that allow me to perform an individual sport of activity, but alongside the motivation of other peers. Going to the gym, for example, is something that I like to do when it is in a group atmosphere. I enjoy working out in a class rather than by myself on the elliptical or treadmill. This provides me with the motivation that I need in order to push myself more and keep myself patient and driven to finish the exercise.
