Green Cap - Fundamental Movement Skills
Agility – Touch 6 cones placed in a star shape while always looking forward
Drill: Hurdle Slalom
Goal: Introduce players to change of direction.
Description: Place 2 sets of 4 hurdles (bats) on the ground separated each by about 6 feet. Position the hurdles so they are NOT in straight line forcing kids to change direction before jumping the next one.
Break the group in 2 groups and explain the players they will be competing in a relay race against the other team. On the coach signal, the first player from each line executes the run and comes back using the same pattern (run, jump with 2 feet together, change direction etc…). First team to have all players complete the run wins.
Equipment: Bats or other sticks (8 total)
Variation & Progression:
- Add a 3rd team to allow for more repetitions.
- Add a baseball at the end of the fourth hurdle and ask each player to bring one back or use it as a relay item.
- Ask player to use one way to go and use the other way to come back.
