Drill: Train Stretch
Equipment needed: 1 ball per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: Students will practice having good discipline by being able to hold a middle split while waiting until they are able to pass a ball all the way to the end of their line.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – Each team can have silly names to gain points for, so the students feel more motivated to gain points, like “hamburgers vs. hotdogs”.
ATTENTION CONTROL – The student must be able to stay in their middle split the entire duration, until the whole team is done, even if they already passed the ball to the person behind them.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Separate your students into lines, based off of how many instructors you have.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • Each student in line will spread out in front of each other about a foot or two apart and go to a middle split position.
  • The first student in line will start with the ball and pass it between their legs to the person behind them.
  • This will continue until the ball has made it to the last person in line. Once the last person has the ball all the students in line will sit strong and say “finished sir/ma’am”.
  • If a student in the line falls over the ball has to go back to the first person in line and they will all have to start over.
  • First line finished gets a point.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Try not to move in your split so that you don’t fall over!
  • Spread your feet as far apart as you can so that you can get better.
  • Control the pass of the ball so that your teammates can grab it.
Step 5
  • Continue for 2-3 turns.
