Drill: Hustle
Equipment needed: One ball per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will learn the difference between RUNNING fast, medium, and slow. They will practice using varying degrees of intensity to catch up to the ball.
Teaching SKILLZ:
CHOICES – The instructor can ask the student how fast they want the instructor to roll the ball: slow, medium, fast, or ninja fast. This will empower the students since they have a choice in the activity, and it will allow the students to choose their own difficulty.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The students must be able to see when the instructor rolls the ball, and catch up to it before it gets too far away from them. This works on their ability to complete a task quickly and accurately, as they must run as fast as they can, so they can catch up to the ball.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each line you will need an Instructor.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The instructor will roll the ball slowly at first, down the mat.
  • The student must run after the ball and bring it back as quickly as possible.
  • Repeat rolling the ball at a medium, then fast speed.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Run fast.
  • Stop fast.
  • Don’t fall.
Step 5
  • Continue until each student goes 3 times.
