Wednesday,
April 29th

It is important before you really jump into a challenge for change to have a day to evaluate how you are going to do it or you will jump ship before you know it. All I am asking is that you give 19 minutes of your MORNING routine to this challenge. Today you will evaluate what your morning routine is and then decide where the 19 minutes for the challenge will go.

Zane Navratil

Racine, WI

The activity is as follows:

Play to 11, win by two. The server starts at the kitchen line. The server calls the score, calls their score first, and then opponents score. The server serves the ball deep to start the half-court rally. The receiver is back on the baseline. Rally begins. If the server wins the rally, they are not awarded a point but do move back to the baseline to receive. If the person who started on the baseline (the receiver) wins the rally, they win a point and stay at the baseline for the next rally.
