Drill: Stack & Smash
Equipment needed: 3 Blocks Per Line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will practice RUNNING by demonstrating their ability to run quickly in multiple quick changing directions. This will challenge the students physically by having them quickly transition from one direction to another.
Teaching SKILLZ:
Step 1
Divide your students into groups.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each line, you will need an instructor with the rings set-up in stepping motion down the mat.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The 1st student will stand up next to their 3 blocks.
  • When the instructor says go the student will grab the first block and run it to the other side of the mat.
  • Once they get to the other side they must put the block down.
  • They will repeat this process until they have stacked up all the blocks, then they get to front kick it down!
  • To make the game more challenging add more blocks, for cooler towers.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Keep your knee high when you kick.
  • Make a nice tower so you can smash it at the end.
  • Take big steps as you run.
Step 5
  • Continue so that each student has at least 2 turns.
