Skill: Discipline
Drill: Crazy Taps
Equipment needed: None
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: Students will practice having good discipline by being able to wait for the instructor to tap them and say a number position, as soon as they hear it they will have to go to that position
Teaching SKILLZ:
TRICKERY – The instructor can stand behind a student and say a number, without tapping them. This will help the student be aware of all their senses, and make sure to wait for the tap and the number.
Brain SKILLZ:
AUDITORY PROCESSING – The students must be able to hear their instructor say a position, and quickly get to the correct position. This works on their ability to follow verbal commands quickly.
Step 1
Divide your students into circles.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Have them sit down for the drill.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • Students will start by standing. The instructor will walk around the circle.
  • The instructor will then tap one student and say 1, 2, 3, or 4. Whichever number they say, will be the listening position the student has to go to.
  • The instructor will keep going around the circle giving each student a different listening position.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Listen so you know what position you have to sit in!
  • Sit strong in each position so that you practice good discipline.
  • Be as fast as you can to get to each position!
Step 5
  • Continue for 2-3 turns.
