INTRODUCTION/SET:

         1) As the students enter the gymnasium, they are asked to take
            a basketball and find a space to begin to dribble.
         2) In place, students dribble until the music stops.
         3) A review of the proper technique used is given.  Do not slap
            or smack the ball, but push it down using the fingertips.
            The ball should stay at the waist level.
         4) Next allow the students to move around the room slowly.
         5) Allow those who choose to and are skillful enough to 
            increase their speed,no running for safety reasons.
         6) Return basketballs to rack on command.

ACTIVITY PROCEDURE:

          1) Divide the students into 7 groups, and put one at each station.
          2) Have the students read the signs at their station.
          3) A brief demonstartion of the stations follows.
          4) Have each group get a pencil and score "stat"sheet.
          5) Instruct the students that these sheets are for the entire group
             and all scores are put together.
          6) Remind the students about where a safe place to put pencils would
             and would not be.
          7) Have each group play and record at the station for 2 minutes.
          8) After 2 minutes, have the students move to the next station 
             in order.
          9) Continue until all stations have been completed.
         10) STATIONS:
                a) standing(foul) shot
                b) moving(lay up) shot
                c) speed dribble(up and back around a cone/2 at a time may go).
                d) zig zag dribble(in & out of cones/2 at a time may go)
                e) partner passing(how many in 30 seconds)
                f) group shoot(nonstop shooting>safety reminders needed).
                g) pulse station(with machines or fingers measure pulse).
           11) Select two groups to work on graphs while other are split 
               into 3v3 games based on ability choices(exp/med/beg)
           12) Rotate the groups so that all may play.
           13) My classes usually need to finish the graphs in the next basketball class.
