Ross has to be one of the most creative teachers I know. I can actually say I know him because we met at a conference a few years ago.

Stop these videos randomly to see what comes up...Absolute GOLD.

collin brooks' youtube channel
I "met" Collin on Twitter about a year ago. In addition to being a regular contributor on Twitter, he is actively involved in his state's SHAPE organization. He has some great ideas on integrating technology in Physical Education. The only complaint I have about his YouTube channel is that I wish he would put more on it! Great work Collin.
OK, so the videos from these guys may not be "P.E.", but they are incredibly entertaining and they are sports related. Trick shots with basketballs, bowling balls, ping pong balls, etc… Watching these videos gave me an idea: Have students create their own "Dude Perfect" videos creating some wild shots of their own. Believe me, after watching some of their videos, you'll be motivated to try some active outdoor shots of your own. Clean, appropriate, and guaranteed to make you smile. "Pound It, Noggin'" time!!!
If you like this game, then you have to check out all the rest of Kristine Ellis' videos. They are all awesome!!!
Great warm-up activity for basketball. Keeps kids moving!!!
