1. Take big steps as you run. 2. Keep your head up so that you don’t fall. 3. Watch where you run.
Skill-Building Drills – 15 Minutes

Beat the Bear:

Students will try to run around the mat without being hit by a big ball, once they are hit they must freeze.
  • Teaching SKILLZ: HEALTHY COMPETITION – The students must be able to beat the “bear” to the cone every time when they come up.
  • Brain SKILLZ: SPEED OF PROCESSING – The student must be able to start quickly, and execute the correct crawl as well, while trying to beat the instructor to the cone.li>

Don’t Drop the Ice Cream:

Students will work on teamwork by working with their teammate by high 5’ing them and allowing them to run.
  • Teaching SKILLZ: NEUROBICS – When the student comes up, ask them what flavor their ice cream is.
