Skill: CRAWLING
Drill: Dizzy Crawls
Equipment needed: 1 Wavemaster per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: Students will practice CRAWLING by demonstrating their ability crawl in a straight line after getting dizzy. This will challenge the students physically by requiring them to crawl without falling after getting disoriented.
Teaching SKILLZ:
EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the students do not fall over while crawling, the instructor will do ten pushups.
Brain SKILLZ:
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to crawl down to the pads despite being dizzy, therefore working on their ability to make sense of the things they see.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Have the students face the Wavemaster top.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The 1st student will get into a bear crawl position.
  • When the instructor says “GO” the student will demonstrate 5 spins while in their bear crawl position.
  • After they are done spinning they can crawl down to the Wavemaster and they can punch or kick it over.
  • Once they bear crawl back they can have a seat of the end of the line.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Don’t crawl on your knees.
  • Crawl fast so you can get strong.
  • Keep your eyes up so you can see the target.
Step 5
  • Continue until each student gets 2 turns.
