 Badminton serve
 Students will be able to perform (a) long high serve for singles (b) short drop serve for doubles (c) short wide serve for doubles
 15 minutes (12:35-12:50) Basketball warmup 10 minutes (12:50-1:00) Rally warmup Split class into 3 groups. Each group will attempt to get to 30 consecutive hits first within a 10 minute timeframe. The first group to reach 30 or longest rally within 10 minutes wins.
 10 (1:00-1:10) I will ask the class if they can brainstorm what sort of serves they use in badminton. I will focus on three serves today: (a) the long high serve used in singles, (b) the short drop serve used in doubles, and (c) the short wide serve used in doubles. I will explain why each serve is effective.
 15 (1:10-1:25) I will have the three rally groups each stationed on a court. Court A will practice the long high serve into a hula hoop/bucket between the endline tramlines. Court B will practice the short drop serve into a hula hoop/bucket near the service line, and Court C will practice the short wide serve into a hula hoop between the sideline tramlines. Each group will spend 5 minutes at each station and rotate until they have been at each station once.
Checking For Understanding:
 5 (1:25-1:30) I will ask the class to form pairs and brainstorm for 1 minute to discuss the benefits of each serve with the understanding any pair can be asked the answer.
 15 (1:30-1:45) Students will participate in a doubles tournament.
