Drill: Parking Spot
Equipment needed: 3 Kicking Shields set up in a U
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: Students will practice CRAWLING by demonstrating their ability to show spatial awareness as they have to crawl. This will challenge them mentally by requiring them to understand where their body is so that they do not crash into the parking spot.
Teaching SKILLZ:
INTRINSIC MOTIVATION – On the second round, the instructor can give the option to try to crawl backwards into their area, explaining that they can be a ninja and do it normally, or they can be a super ninja if they do it backwards.
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to sucessfully crawl into the small space they have, while making sure that they do not knock any of the pads over. This works on their ability to process visual activities.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Have the student stand up and face their instructor.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • When the instructor says “GO” the student will get into their bear crawl position.
  • The student will have to crawl all the way down to the parking spot.
  • The student will have to fit into the spot without touching the sides or knocking down the pads.
  • On round 2 have them try to back into the spot.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Go as fast as you can!
  • Use your eyes to see the pads.
  • Don’t wiggle in the spot or you may knock over the pads.
