Skill: Fitness
Drill: Bulls-eye
Equipment needed: One wavemaster pad, one block, one ring per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will work on their focus by learning to perform straight punches. This will also develop hand eye coordination and spatial awareness.
Teaching SKILLZ:
CHOICES – On the second round, the instructor can ask how difficult the student wants their turn to be: easy, meaning minimal movement of the ball, medium, meaning the ball slowly moves up and down as they punch, or hard, meaning the ball moves a lot during their turn. This will empower the students since they have a choice in the activity, and it will allow the students to choose their own difficulty.
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to punch a block through the ring to get a bulls-eye. This works on their ability to participate in visual activities, as they have to hit the block in a straight line to make it through the ring, and they have to judge the distance between their target and the ring.

Divide your students into lines
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Place the block on top of the wavemaster pad, one step away at the same level have the instructor hold the ring.
