Skill: Precision
Drill: Mini Golf
Equipment needed: 1 ring/3 small pads per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: Students will practice having good PRECISION by demonstrating their ability to hit small targets with their sidekicks, they will be aiming these targets to a small marked area.
Teaching SKILLZ:
NTRINSIC MOTIVATION – The instructor can tell the students to remember how many times they were able to kick the pad into the ring on the first round, if any. On the second round, the instructor can motivate the students to kick the pad in the ring more times than they did on the first round.
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to hit the pad into the ring from a distance away. This works on their ability to make sense of what they see, as they have to judge the distance between the pad and the ring, and judge how much power they need to hit the pad in the ring.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Have the students sitting with the instructor.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The 1st student in the lie will stand up and face the wavemaster with the small pad held out.
  • The ring will be about 6’ from the student who will then take their first shot at kicking the bag.
  • The students are aiming to get one of their pads to land in the ring, for every pad that does the instructor will get 5 push-ups.
  • The person that gets the closest in the game is also the winner.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Hit the center so that the pad goes straight.
  • Gauge your power so that you can reach the “hole.”
  • Chamber 1st so that you have a accurate kick.
Step 5
  • Continue until each person has 2-3 turns.
