Playing Ultimate Champ Training

Step 1: Select Gameplay Mode

When you open Ultimate Champ Training, you’ll choose your mode of play.  Click Play to play the game using the built-in health questions. 

Step 2: Configure Your Game

When you click Play, you will choose three settings that will determine how the game works.
  1. Select your grade level. This determines the challenge level of the questions presented to your class.
  2. Select the categories of questions you’d like to use in this play session. See About the Health Trivia Content in Ultimate Champ Training for more information about the categories.

  3. Choose how long you wish to play. You can choose a 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10 minute session.

Step 3: Warm Up and Jog In Place

When your session begins, Coach Terry will appear on the screen and ask students to jog in place as a warm up. 

Step 4: Answer a Question

Coach Terry will then ask a question. You may choose to read the question aloud, or let students read the question. The class will then answer.
Have students continue jogging in place and answer aloud. Before playing, you should set an expectation with your class about how answering will be managed inside your class: you may wish to ask students to answer in unison, or you may elect to select a student to answer. 
Click the answer your students selected. 
  • If the question was answered correctly, you’ll proceed to the exercise.
  • If the question was answered incorrectly, you’ll receive a new question. You must answer a question correctly to access an exercise.

Step 5: Exercise!

Coach Terry will then lead the class in a unique exercise. There are 30 possible exercises in the game; each session will give you a random assortment of exercises. Encourage students to listen closely to Coach Terry’s direction and use their imaginations in interpreting his directions!

Step 6: Repeat until session end.

When the exercise ends, students should jog in place again while Coach Terry asks another question. 
Ultimate Champ Training will continue to present new questions and exercises for the duration you selected during setup. Once that duration has passed, the game will end as soon as possible, without interrupting a question or exercise.

Step 7: High five and review summary.

When the session ends, Coach Terry will encourage students to high-five a partner. He’ll then present a summary of the play session.
