Swiveling hips is a coordination game.


  • a rope (or lace, etc.)
  • one object to put on the rope as weight, maybe a knot in the rope is enough as well.
  • several smaller object (like cans, balls, etc.)


One player gets the rope knotted around his waist. The rope (with the weight) should not touch the floor, but be able to swing freely a few centimeters above the ground.

By shaking and swinging his hips, the rope should be made to swing, either in front or between the feet. Using this "batter", the player now tries to hit the smaller object, like if he would play golf or cricket. He should move the objects towards a predefined finish. The trainers take the time, how long it takes him to move all objects there. Of course, the objects may not be moved (or even touched) by any body part!
