Drill: Double Trouble
Equipment needed: 2 dodge balls per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will learn to use both hands while rolling two balls. This will develop focus and coordination as they try to control both balls at the same time.
Teaching SKILLZ:
CHOICES – Have the students choose what color balls they would want to use. They will be more motivated to roll the balls since they had the power of choosing the colors.
DIVIDED ATTENTION – The student must be able to focus on two hands at once, as they must roll two balls at the same time. This focuses on their ability to do multiple things at one time.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each line you will need two dodge balls.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:

Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Watch both hands.
  • Don’t lose the balls.
  • Stay in a straight line.
