Skill: Intensity
Drill: Back and Forth
Equipment needed: None
Instructors needed: Several to monitor
Description: In this drill the students will work on their intensity by performing stronger and louder than the line across from them.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – The instructor can give the lines silly team names in order to motivate the students, like “hamburgers vs. hot dogs”. This will motivate the students to play the game with effort in order to score and win for their team.
AUDITORY PROCESSING – The students must hear the team that go before them, and judge how loud they are, and determine how loud they will have to be in order to beat them. This works on their ability to analyze what is heard.
