Wiffle Ball: Turning a Backyard Favorite into an Appropriate Physical Education Unit
Layne, Todd E.
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v30 n4 p32-40 2017
Wiffle ball is a game that has been played for many years (Santora, 2003). Unfortunately, implementation in physical education has been inconsistent at best. The sport education model outlined in this article provides an appropriate method for teaching skills associated with wiffle ball for a variety of ages. Students can develop appropriate skills, learn about different roles associated with the sport, and work together as a team to accomplish goals in a fun and productive physical education setting.
