Sports in the Sacred Valley

Every Thursday during our time in Urubamba, THINK Global School and five local schools participated in a series of sports competitions to help build relationships among our students and local youth, practice fitness, learn regional dances, and simply enjoy the fresh Sacred Valley air. The series of events were arranged by THINK Global School PE Teacher Adam Sturman, who also provided our students with a series of warm ups and quick games to help them prepare. Sample exercises and games included:

  • Walking lunges
  • Jumping Jacks
  • Bear Crawls
  • Hand slaps in push up positions
  • Heel to toe, toe to heel balance games

Something that I did not predict was how little language was necessary to play a great game of football. I personally found it compelling how activities such as sports -that I now know require few words and prior knowledge- forge memorable relationships, even when there is a language barrier.  -Kay M, Class of 2018

During these events, 12th grader Krystof Stupka put his photography and editing skills to good use by capturing his classmates, the school’s faculty, and Urubamba’s local youth socializing and participating in the events. Highlights from his collection can be found below.

Thanks to the citizens of Urubamba for being so welcoming, and making the Sacred Valley feel like home!
