REP Olympics

Who: Grades K-5 

Players: 8-12 

Time: 15 minutes+ 

Where: Gymnasium, hallway, playground 

Equipment: Tape, cones, task tents. 

Set-up: When creating stations, space cones far enough apart so students can remain 6 feet away from each other for the duration of the activity. Insert the REP sport activity sheets into the task tents (one sheet per tent, to create a total of up to eight stations). You may want to number each station to help guide participants.  

How to Play

  • Gather up! Make sure players are standing 6 feet apart from one another. 
  • The leader says, "You have all been selected to compete in Asphalt Green’s REP Olympics! It is important that we train for all of the different sports we might be competing in." 
  • All around the room there are different sport stations with a task tent. Each task tent contains a card with a description and illustration of the sport you will need to practice. For example: There is a swimming station where you will need to practice your different swim strokes. 
  • Players will have 60 seconds at each station, so make sure you are training for the whole time. 
  • Players will get one point for each completed skill. 
  • Everyone will transition to the next sport station after 60 seconds. 
  • Reminder: There is no equipment; participants must act out the action using their imagination 

Game Tip 

  • Make sure there are enough activity stations so there are never more than two to three participants at a station, and ensure there is always enough room for students to be 6 feet away from one another.  

Check for Understanding

  • How long do players have at each sport station? 
  • How will players know it’s time to switch sport stations? 

Conflict-Resolution Tip

If players are having a hard time at any particular station, have them practice their skills by moving slower. No athlete can ever practice their skills enough.
