Danish Longball - Striking & Fielding Game for Physical Education

Danish Longball is one of my all-time favourite striking and fielding games to include in my physical education program. The game provides so many opportunities for modifications and builds that you can really explore a great variety of skills and tactics, regardless of your students’ current learning levels. Over time, I’ve adapted the builds I use for the game, which is why you are seeing a new version of it here. Big shout out to Joy Butler and her awesome article on the game for helping me better tailor the activity to meet the needs of my students!
