The trainer explains the game for the participants. If needed, player can ask question to clarify and understand the activity.



Second half (15')


The players are devided into two groups by choosing a fruit from the bag. Ideally by choosing the fruits two equal groups will be formed. In case of a discrepancy, the trainers will adjust the players.
Every player in both teams receives a ball and they start to play keepy-uppy (hackey sack).The game continues until everyone drops their ball.
After everyone drops the balls, the members from each team, who dropped it first will represent their respective team. The two of them will hold a contest, by doing the hackey sack again, until on of them drops the ball.
The winner of the contest is not the one, who could keep the ball longer in the air, but the one who will reach the higher scores comparing to his/her former achievement (e.g. number of strikes to the ball or total time).



Cool-down (0')


None Needed

The players give their feedback on the game and how they felt being scored according to their (comparative) achievement. How did the final two participants feel being put in the spotlight though they did not have the best first performance?
At the end, participants eat their fruits together.
