Skill: Strength
Drill: Dodgeball Transfer
Equipment needed: 8 kicking shields/bucket, dodgeballs
Instructors needed: A few to monitor
Description: The students will work on their cardio STRENGTH by continuously running dodgeballs back and forth for 1 minute.
Teaching SKILLZ:
TRICKERY – The instructor can say things like “ghost” and “gogurt” in order to try and trick the students. This will enhance their auditory processing skills as they have to listen for the whole word, and not just the sounds in the word.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The students must be able to run to the dodgeballs, pick up the dodgeballs and place them in the buckets on their turn. This works on their ability to complete a task quickly and accurately.
Step 1
Divide the class into two teams.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
You will need 2 large containers or 8 pads to form two boxes to contain the dodgeballs.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • When you say “go” the first person of each team will run to the opposing team’s dodgeballs and grab one.
  • Then run it back to their container and place it inside.
  • The next person in line will then race to the opposing team’s container grab another ball and run it back.
  • If a dodgeball falls out of the container when they return it, then it must remain out of the container and does not count.
  • Continue for 1 minute. The team with the most dodgeballs at the end of 1 minute is the winner.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Breathe as you run so you don’t run out of breath.
  • Pay attention to where you place the ball to be sure it gets into the box.
  • Wait for your teammate to give you a high five before you go.
Step 5
  • Continue for three rounds.
