Indoor Assault course:

In your house clear a space and make an assault course using whatever is available e.g.

  • Tins cans (instead of cones) 
  1. Crawl over the tin cans.
  2. Then use tined cans to weave in and out.
  • Jumping on the spot
  • Star jumps
  • Reach high and touch your toes…many times

Top tip:

You do not need to mark things out just agree on what is happening before. You could write in down on a piece of paper. E.g.

  1. five star jumps in front of the chair
  2. weave in and out of the cans
  3. run on the spot for a minute


  • Can you time how long it takes you to complete the course? Can you improve your score?

Assault course:

In your garden make an assault course using whatever is available e.g.

  • a chair could be used to run around or crawl under
  • a football thrown up 5 times and caught or kicked at a target (box or anything that is lying around in your garden)
  • run from one side of the garden to the other


  • Can you time how long it takes you to complete the course? Can you improve your score?
