Noodle Sculling

How to play:

The objective is to enhance body orientation and balance skills. This will improve endurance and strength with forward and back sculling.

  • Students maintain balance in upright ‘sitting’ position.
  • Practice sculling to target (forward sculling) and back to start (back sculling).
  • Practice lying back and recovering to stable ‘sitting’ position.
