Description of Idea

For this activity students will learn the different ways to score points in a football game while performing a dynamic warm up.

Discuss with the students about the different ways a football team can earn points in a football game. For each way a team can score, the students will perform a variety of exercises based upon how many points the team can earn. Touchdown has 6 exercises. Extra Point has 1. Field goal has 3. Safety has 2. While the music is playing students will try and perform the different exercises. When the music stops, students can add up how many points they earned based upon how many exercises they complete. Students must do all the exercises in order to earn the points in that category.

Perform each exercise for 30-45 seconds.


1. Jog
2. Alternating Lunges
3. High Knees
4. Heel Kicks
5. Side Slide
6. Fast feet or Sprint
