    Trap/Block with Implement (Stick)

    Controlling or stopping the movement of an object using an implement.

    Trap/Block with Implement (Stick)
    • Move into the path of the object to intercept it
    • Maintain eye contact with the object
    • Assume a ready position with a strong base of support
    • Present a large surface of the implement to trap or block the object
    • As the object strikes the implement, cushion the object to absorb the impact
    • Control the object by slightly moving the implement in the same direction as the object’s motion

    • play scooter hockey
    • play ringette
    Self Check Questions:
    • Do I follow the path of the object and move my body to intercept it?
    • Am I able to control the object by cushioning it with my implement?
    • Do I use my implement safely, keeping it down near the floor?
