Looking for a new game to add to your gym class roster?
KanJam is the perfect indoor/outdoor activity and encourages exercise, improved coordination skills and friendly competition without physical contact. KanJam is already utilized in over 5,200 schools throughout the U.S. as part of the physical education curriculum. Make KanJam part of your school’s PE game plan.
What is KanJam?
KanJam is a fast-paced, interactive team game that is easy to learn. Consisting of two target goals and a flying disc, four players, on two teams, take turns throwing and deflecting the disc as they try to score points by hitting or entering the goal. The first team to score 21 points wins the game, unless a player throws a hugely popular “Instant Win.”
Everybody’s Playing It
From school gyms to informal hallway tournaments, students across the country are brushing up on their KanJam moves. Because KanJam can be played anywhere, students can further develop their skills outside of school—at the park, on a camping trip or at the beach.
A Portable and
Low Cost Solution
KanJam can be set up in a matter of minutes. When gym class is over, it can be rolled up and stored conveniently. Since each KanJam game has four players, only a few KanJam game sets are needed to keep your entire class active and engaged. Priced at less than $40, KanJam makes an inexpensive addition to your physical education program.
Meeting the Standards
KanJam emphasizes enjoyable and safe participation in physical activity and offers an alternative to traditional team sports that may alienate some young people. KanJam keeps your students moving and fosters cooperation and teamwork.
KanJam Allows Students to:
- Practice basic and complex motor and manipulative skills by taking turns tossing and deflecting the KanJam disc
- Apply the concept of movement by learning to anticipate the flight of a partner’s throw and then moving to that location for the deflection
- Enhance hand-eye coordination
- Develop physical fitness skills through regular practice, effort and perseverance
- Analyze a partner’s performance in a movement task
- Demonstrate responsible personal and social behavior, including mutual respect, acceptance and sportsmanlike behavior
