Drill: Army Race
Equipment needed: 1 pad/cone per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will practice CRAWLING by demonstrating their army crawl as they are trying to race their friends to be the first person to grab their pad.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – The instructor can award a point to the fastest person, and the student with the most points at the end of the game will win.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The student must hear the instructor say “go”, and then crawl down to the pad at the end of the mat and get their first to get a point. This works on their ability to complete a task quickly and accurately.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
The students will sit in front of the instructor.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The 1st student in each line will get into their army crawl position.
  • When the instructor says “GO” the students will all start to crawl towards their pad which is 6’ away.
  • The 1st student to get their pad will earn a point.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Use your arms so you can get strong
  • Keep your eyes open so you can see your pad.
  • Crawl as fast as you can.
Step 5
  • Continue until each person has 2-3 turns.
