Sabaki is the Japanese word for movement. Sabakiball is a fast paced running and passing game where, after you complete three passes, you try to knock down the opposing team's pin. The game begins with a jump ball and then also after again after every score, when there is a new goalie for both teams. Each player moves with the ball for three seconds or less; passing to complete three consecutive passes before scoring. Fast paced and non-contact, the play is continuous.

You have received an "I OWE YOU" in P.E. class today. How sad! Please open the I OWE YOU pdf and follow the instructions to erase that nasty zero grade you earned today. Remember, your I OWE YOU needs to be personally turned in to me at the start of your next P.E. class to get credit for what is sure to be a spectacular apology note. Candy and flowers are not required, just a sincere abrupt change of attitude working toward cooperation, respect and more fun. Remember the Spartan Way!


All 5-8 grade students should practice perfect push ups when they wake up in the morning!
