Skill-Building Drills – 15 Minutes

Race to the Line:

In this drill the students will practice having coordination by knowing the left side of the room and the right side of the room.
  • Teaching SKILLZ: TRICKERY – The instructor can point to the left, and say “right” to try and trick the students.
  • Brain SKILLZ: SPEED OF PROCESSING – When the instructor says a direction, they must quickly make the correct choice and run to the correct side, while standing strong.


In this drill we will work on our COORDINATION through repetition by doing and saying each Left and Right command to build body awareness.
  • Teaching SKILLZ: EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the student can complete their turn without any mistakes, the instructor will do five pushups.
