Jump Rope for Heart Activity – Elimination

For our Jump Rope for Heart which the Being Active team organised, one of four activities organised by Jamie & Logan was Elimination. In the game of Elimination, several players all skip in one giant rope at the same time, attempting to all skip continuosley at the same time. If us leaders believe that one person stuffed it up, the leaders will eliminate them, and the others continuosley until there is +just one remaining. This activity was one of the favourites on the day!

Leopold Soccer Club

Next year Leopold, will be having a soccer club. The soccer that I played was at Life Be In It near Landy Field in Geelong. Now there is one in Leopold. There is a lot of positions to play such as Goal Keeper, Forwards, Defence, Midfield and Wing.

In my years of playing indoor soccer it was fun and exciting. In soccer the goal keeper is allowed to touch the ball from the shoulder below. I your not the goal keeper you will get penalised for touching the ball. It’s a bit like basketball no physical contact.

Soccer is one of the longest games in the world. For seniors you have 45mins each half plus stoppage time. So in total you have 90mins in total plus stoppage time. Very exhausting. If you like long games, not using your hands and play around the world in seniors then, this is just the right game for you.
