Swiss Ball Throw

Intended Learning
Students understand the relationship between stability and accuracy
Students recognise that in most cases power and accuracy is
increased when stability is increased.

Balance on the swiss ball in the 3 positions below. Place a rubbish bin 5 metres away. Using tennis balls,
take three shots from each position, aiming to get the tennis ball into the rubbish bin. Record your results.
Position 1 Sitting with feet on the ground and legs apart
Position 2 Feet off ground while sitting on a swiss ball
Position 3 Standing on a swiss ball (with spotters).
