Land Paddling: Making Fitness Fun
Bretzing, Robyn; Barney, David
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v28 n4 p13-18 2015
Research has shown that secondary physical education (6-12) is full of team sport activities (football, basketball, volleyball, etc.). These activities are not bad, yet secondary-age students want a greater variety of activities to participate in. One activity that secondary physical educators can implement is Land paddling. Land paddling is similar to stand-up paddle boarding, which is commonly seen in beach areas. Its revolutionary design allows for better balance and control on the long board, while giving riders an upper body and core workout. This new fitness activity is becoming popular not only in physical education programs, but also with many sport teams due to its core training benefits. The purpose of this article is to introduce this activity and inform secondary physical educators how to incorporate it in their curriculum.
