PREPARE
Thruster Ball –A traditional game of catch that has kids starting about 3 meters apart. Players perform a thruster for each throw, using a dodgeball to 4# Dynamini ultra-soft medicine ball. Ball is thrown in a high arcing pattern at the top of each thruster.

GET READY

10-meter roped 25# pulls. Set up 4 or more pulls to keep kids moving. Coach should reset direction of rope as needed if opposite facing sides are used to pull. Use good middle of the squat (WIO Position 3) position with torso upright while pulling.

MOVEMENT PRACTICE
