Game description

In the group program „summer Olympics“ a simple discipline to introduce is the long jump. If there is no long jump pit available a soft ground can also be used. You could also hold a triple jump competition on the grass. Make a mark on the ground which is not allowed to stepped over when jumping. Each jumper has 3 jumps. If a player steps over the line the jump does not count.


The furthest jump is judged. You can either set up a points scale and award the relevant points or the player with the furthest jump wins.
