Hop | Ophea Teaching Tools


A take off from one foot landing on the same foot.

  • Stand on one foot with the other leg flexed at the knee
  • Swing both arms back at the same time as the flexed leg swings back
  • Swing both arms forward and upward
  • Push off from toes of standing leg and swing flexed leg forward to produce force
  • Land softly on the ball of the foot with the knee bent to absorb impact
I can also...
  • participate in triple jump
  • perform a hip hop dance
  • jump rope
Self Check Questions:
  • Am I moving my arms and swing leg together in one fluid motion?
  • Do I land on the same foot as I take off from?
  • Do I use my arms to help produce force?
