Get your students jumping in a fun, new way! These durable plastic batons with attached plastic balls put a new spin on your jump rope unit, teaching timing and coordination. A slight circular motion on the baton gets the rope and ball going around in circles on the ground and a quick jump over is all it takes to get involved.
Different than traditional jump ropes, these batons offer a more advanced jumping challenge that will spice up your jumping unit. Horizontal revolutions instead of vertical arcs makes timing and coordination more difficult for advanced jumpers, despite the simple nature of the challenge. Speed challenges and different jumping styles provide opportunities for activities of all types. You can also easily incorporate these batons into relay races and challenges.
Cardiovascular endurance comes naturally when using these batons! Coordination between spinning the baton and jumping puts emphasis on rhythm, pace, and agility. Have players stand side-by-side for cooperative play with a single baton to promote teamwork and communication.
Economical and Strong
The strong plastic construction of the baton, nylon rope, and plastic ball makes these ideal for use on any surface. The weight of the ball ensures continued trajectory even when it skips on the ground, without damage or interruption to the activity. An affordable option for any class, the longevity of this economical option means a superior return on investment. Baton is 32"L; rope is 42"L.
