Skill: Coordination
Drill: Kick the Sandwich
Equipment needed: 2 small square pads, 1 spot dot per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: In this fun drill, the students will practice developing foot-eye COORDINATION by kicking pads that are thrown to them.
Teaching SKILLZ:
NEUROBICS – The instructor can ask the student to describe their sandwich, the colors and the different food that is included. This will connect their left and right hemispheres of the brain, and keep the students engaged in the activity.
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to see the objects flying in the air, and see when it is close enough to kick. This works on their ability to process visual activity and track moving objects.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Have 1 instructor to throw pads for each line. Set up 2 pads and 1 spot dot for each line.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The student will first decide what their favorite sandwich is!
  • Then the instructor will take a few steps back and throw the first pad (bread). The student must kick the pad out of the air.
  • Then stack the pad (bread) and dot (filling) and throw. The student will then kick that out of the air.
  • Then complete the sandwich by stacking a pad (bread), dot (filling), and another pad (bread), and throw.
  • The student wins when they kick the whole sandwich out of the air.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Keep your eye on the sandwich.
  • Don’t forget to chamber and pick up your knee.
  • Yell loud when you hit the sandwich.
