1. Editor's Note

Well, it has been four days since I played in our annual old-man's basketball tournament. I still can't walk, but fortunately, I CAN type. So, get ready for the latest edition of PE Tips of the week.

Physical Education Tips of the Week #44
May 8, 2008
This week, we published some interesting articles: A hockey article exposes the amount of time players actually touch the puck during games; a tennis article reveals how many steps a pro takes per shot compared to recreational players; and the golf article discusses the mysteries of compression rating and how that can affect your game.

This newsletter also provides free links to a web page that will provide your students with free bookmarks as an incentive for creative activities related to fitness. There's a link to the weekly blog, in which I discuss an alarming new activity called "The Choking Game," along with ways to identify students who may be participating. And finally, the Pick of the Week is a game for health class that will help students review the basic muscle groups.

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:

3. New Additions to the Websites

Here are the Articles that have been added to the websites this week.
These articles are available only to PE Update members.

  • Golf: Golf Ball Compression - Unlocking the Mystery
    The compression ratings on golf balls can affect your success on the course. Here's what the ratings mean.

  • Hockey: Possession Time in Games is not Enough to Develop Skills
    Games are a poor place to learn hockey skills because players touch the puck for only about 60 seconds over the course of a typical game.

  • Tennis: Recreational Tennis Players Should Take More Steps Per Shot
    Professional tennis players take 3-4 times more steps per shot than recreational players. Includes a coaching cue to improve footwork.
