Description: n this drill we will work on the students’ ability to work together, plan ahead and remember their words.
Teaching SKILLZ:
EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – The instructor can allow the winning team to be safe from the exercise that one of the instructors picks, with the exercise being around 5-10 reps.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The students must be able to throw the ball to the other team and say their word, while also keeping track of who hit the ball last in order to not have the same person hitting the ball every time. This works on their ability to make the correct choices quickly and accurately, as they have to make sure that a team member hits the ball quickly or they might be out.
Step 1
Divide the class into four groups.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Assign each group to ¼ of the mat.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • They must pass the ball back and forth saying their word every time they pass it.
  • The same student cannot catch the ball twice in a row.
  • After 30 seconds, the instructor will say “stop”. Whichever team has possession of the ball is out.
  • The game continues until only one team remains standing.
  • If the ball is thrown to a team that is out, the throwing team is eliminated.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Ability to think ahead and work strategy with word selection
