Aussie Rulez

*4 people in each group
*Hand Ball
*Aussie Rules
*Playing With Room 9

‘SMACK’ went the ball as it flew through the air and landed into my partners palm “Wheew that was kinda a challenge ” I said as I tossed the ball through the air. We where learning a new game named Aussie Rules. This game is alot different to rugby and league in Aussie Rules if you passed the ball like how you would pass it in rugby you would instantly get the ball taken from your tram and given to the other team. In this game you had to pop the ball out with your fist so you would lay it out in your palm and use your other hand to whack it out. Our Tutors names are Eamon Simpson and Micheal Gregson.

This technique is called hand ball next week ir it stops raining we will go out side and learn how to drop put the ball it also is another unique skill that might only be used in this game. But what made the game a even better experience was that we where playing with students from room 9. In the end we had a quick group challenge we had to pass the ball to everyone in our group and every time someone caught it that was counted as one point the most points someone got for just 2 people was 72. The 2 little kids that where in my group was Uli and one of his friends it was funny cause Uli could be a good catcher and thrower and then drop the ball more occasionally.

It was fun in the end our group had a top score of 52 points in one minute.

My Reflection On Our Beep Test

"WooooooW now that was like we were running a marathon or something" I said as my lungs bursted for air. I had stopped as my friends kept jogging from cone to cone. We were in the middle of a beep test, this was a test to see what our fitness level was at. My final score in the end was 4.3 and I was already tired as I could possibly be. As more and more people stopped it came down to the final person Ieremus. As he ran people cheered until he came to a stop with a final score of 8.1.
To get up my fitness level I have to eat healthy everyday and to train hard and to go to sleep at a reasonable time. Just like my motto 'NO TRAIN NO GAIN'.
For people out there a beep test is a test to see what your fitness level is at and if you have a high-score that means that you are very very fit and if you get over 6.0 in england you will be able to become a rugby player!!!
