9780318172453: Cowstails and Cobras: A Guide to Ropes Courses, Initiative Games, and Other Adventure Activities

This document is designed as a resource book for senior high school physical education teachers to aid in the development of initiative and adventure activities involving rope exercises. Goals of these exercises are defined as; (1) increasing personal competence; (2) increasing mutual support within a group; (3) developing an increased level of agility and physical coordination; (4) developing joy in one's physical self and in being with others; and (5) developing increased familiarity and identification with the natural world. The author discusses exercises appropriate for coordination, cardiovascular warmup, limberness, distance covering, and other preliminary activities. Procedures for instruction in falling techniques, spotting, belaying, and knot tying are discussed. Construction of a rope course, group activities, winter activities, and games and nongames are detailed. Practical considerations on weather, scheduling, coeducation classes, and safety are noted.
