Centipede Crawl Activity
This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
2 rope lengths per scout - 2 or 3 feet long.
Each scout is given his two ropes.
Patrol lines up with patrol leader at front of line.
On 'GO' signal, each scout ties a rope around his own right ankle and the ankle of the scout in front of him using clove hitches. He then ties the second rope on the left ankles using taut-line hitches.
When all scouts are connected, the patrol leader leads the centipede around a marker and back.
When they cross the finish line, scouts untie, line up, and give patrol yell.
Fastest time wins.
If you do not have enough rope, run just two patrols at a time.
Use other knots for different practice.
