Physical Education Tips of the Week #42
April 24, 2008

Dick Moss, Editor

1. Editor's Note

Summer is slowly but surely getting here, and you Fall sport coaches will be encouraging your athletes to engage in a summer fitness program. This week, we've included an article on how to improve their compliance during those long, distracting summer months. You'll also see a video demonstration of an exercise that's great for adding plyometric content to warmups.

This newsletter also provides free links to an inspirational video on unused potential; the weekly blog, in which I discuss the effects of health and PE cuts on teen pregnancy rates; and a baseball fielding article on when and how to barehand the ball.

This newsletter is free, but most of the content on the website is for members-only, including instructional videos, the discussion group, almost 2000 articles that you can read, print and email... and much more.

If you're not already a member, I highly recommended that you join!! Get more information here:

If you aren't ready to join yet, there's lots of free content on the website and in these newsletters!

I hope you enjoy this issue of PE Tips of the Week!
