Meant for Beginners
Made of a durable neoprene foam, these soft and safe batons are very soft and flexible, especially when compared to traditional aluminum. Beginners will especially appreciate this material, as it makes the batons easier to handle and takes any potential fear out of exchanges. An additional texture on the surface adds to their grippy nature. This makes these batons the perfect tool for teaching handoff technique.
Additionally, the batons are longer than traditional relay batons, at 14” versus 11-1/2”. This makes it easier for students to make handoffs, as there is more area to grab, another beginner-friendly element.
Batons are available in Rainbow® Sets of 6 to help teachers easily organize groups by color or to mark off different starting stations and points.
