Splendid Split Leaps

Hi All!

Today I’m going to talk very briefly about leaps. And part of why I say very briefly is these videos today are incredibly short, I apologize. But they are excellent examples of things that I think can be very useful on a day to day basis with leaps.

This first drill is the FIRST, FIRST, FIRST thing I do before teaching split leaps. Before I get kids leaps extensively I want them to be able to push through their toes well. It’s a really easy thing to add into your complex, or to make a side station where they are doing this over dots on the floor etc.

This second video is another REALLY, REALLY good drill. Generally when working on leaps I like to make a whole series of stations JUST FOR leaps. This is one of those ones that I think should ALWAYS go in. It defiantly helps kids push on the floor and all the way through their feet.

What are your favorite drills for split leaps?
