Physical Education Tips of the Week #50
June 17, 2008
If you're a golf fan, you HAD to enjoy the television coverage of this week's U.S. Open, in which a 45-year old journeyman took Tiger Woods to 19 holes in a mano-a-mano playoff. So, this week's additions to the website include a golf article and video on the height of the follow-through when chipping the ball. We've also added an article on the number and type of teaching cues to use when teaching bouldering skills to middle school students. And finally, an article on where NOT to aim the ball when playing tennis (Can you guess "the court lines?").

The above articles are for PE Update members only. But how about free stuff? This newsletter includes links to a very fun website that allows you to challenge Steve Nash in a free-throw shooting contest; a tennis cue on how to better keep your eyes on the incoming ball; and our blog article in which a world class sprinter's drug cheating regimen is revealed - it's informative and rather frightening.

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.

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

5. Free Pick of the Week

Each week, I'll highlight a useful article from the PE Update Archives. The article will be available to non-members of the website for a week, and to members forever!

This week's pick is:
Tennis: Coaching Cue for Watching the Ball

Tennis players are usually advised to keep their eyes on the ball until it contacts with their racquet, but it's a rare player who can actually see the racquet and ball make contact. Here's a cue to make "watching the ball" easier to perform.
