Lowell Elementary School in Indianapolis has HAD it with the regular old “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” game, and its students have invented a new version of the game to take it to a whole new level.

The rules seem to be:
-You must hop through an obstacle course of hula hoops to face your opponent.
-Play a single round of rock-paper-scissors.
-The winner will advance in the direction of the other team, the loser must run to the back of their team’s line.
lol this can be 100% done in fortnite playground mode 😛

Where is the ref ? Lots of botched skips. Game should be replayed with some oversight

Eric Branch, the genius gym teacher who came up with the game, has christened it the “Hoop Hop Showdown,” according to Time.
“I love the reaction that it’s gotten,” Branch said. “I think what’s most powerful about it is not the game itself, but the kids and the energy that they have in the video.”
i need to know who won

The masses have taken quite a liking-it’s a far cry from the PE Classes where we all hid from dodgeballs and hoped we could get a doctor’s note to excuse us for the rest of our lives.

Great idea for a game! Can more pathways be created to get more kids moving and playing? Also, make them do the Shoot Dance while playing ✂️ pic.twitter.com/sOBOpp7krd

And Mr. Branch says that this was hardly the whole game.
It went on for another 10 minutes at least. No even kidding. Thanks @espn

We can’t wait to see the Hoop Hop Showdown as a standard on nationwide PE curricula.
I’m so using this at my school this year great idea
