Lab B Transcript- Shane Jones

(to class)

Alright Good Morning class! Can everyone bring it in real quick?

How’s everyone doing today? I’m Mr. Jones I’ll be your substitute teacher for today.

I’ve got a quick question for you guys, is anyone here a baseball fan? We’ve got a few baseball fans. Any Yankee fans? I’m sorry to hear that.

Um, well, the reason I asked that is because uh, I was watching baseball the other night and when I watch baseball I get real animated, get real involved in it, all the calls.. every play.

And the umpire called the guy out when he was clearly safe, so I’m yelling at the tv I’m like “He’s safe, he’s safe!” doing that motion right there and it got me thinking you know thats the same motion you do in the double under front cross.

So I want you guys to do that motion for me. Alright, real exaggerated just like that

So today we’re going to be working on a couple different cues to remember when doing the double under front cross.

You’re going to want to remember tempo. Tempo is really important you’re going to want to keep the same pace at all times just like when you’re doing a normal jump rope.

You want to cross the rope near, or at your elbows. Which means when you’re coming over you really want to exaggerate and get up here. You don’t want to cross at your wrists because it won’t create a big enough loop for you to jump through when the rope comes under.

And the third thing is you really want to exaggerate your arm movements like I said earlier, you really want to exaggerate them so make sure you have enough space.

So if you want to go over to the box and grab a rope, and its gonna be kind of tough because of the close space. Try the best you can.

We’ll do it in waves of 8. So I need 8 people out here first so if everyone else can stand along the back wall. We’re just gonna practice it real quick so what I want you guys to do is take three normal hops just like this.. 1, 2, 3 and then on the fourth one I want you guys to do the double under front cross. So you’re gonna do 1, 2, 3... 1, 2, 3. Like that, alright so let’s give that a try. Try to find a space.

(to Sarah)

Great job Sarah!

(to group 1)

Remember, you really want to exaggerate the movements.

Alright, if you guys wanna stop and watch Sarah real quick. She’s going to do a little demo for us.

She’s really doing a good job of crossing at the elbows. She’s keeping that same tempo. Good job Sarah!

Alright let’s get the next group out here to give it a try.

(to Group 2)

Just try to find a space, I know its kind of crowded but we’re gonna do the best we can with it.

Whenever you’re ready you can go.

It’s all about tempo!

Good job!

You really want to cross at the elbows

Good job Alex!

Keep that tempo going

Alright, we’re going to try a little competition here, we’re going to see how many you can get in 30 seconds.

So as an individual you are going to count how many you can get. I’ll keep track of time.

Yeah how many crosses you can get in 30 seconds

Ready go!

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Alright stop

(to entire class)

Well it looks like Will and Cory got the most so on the count of 3 I want you to point to them and yell “You Guys Are Awesome!” 1, 2, 3.

(to Group 1)
