Belly Starts

Students Groups of 5

Equipment 4 marker cones

Area Large open space


Set out 4 marker cones to create 2 lines 15-20 meters apart. Students lie in lines on the floor face down. On a signal the students in the first row scramble to their feet and sprint to the line 15 meters away. Repeat the activity until each line of students has done a belly start.


Vary the starting positions (eg facing the opposite direction, kneeling, reclining)
