Today I’m going to share a few videos that might be helpful with your rec classes. It’s easy for coaches (especially those who just work with team) to forget about the rec kids. To forget that so much has been done with these kids possibly before we even see them. Even if you are strictly a team coach it’s always a good idea to communicate with your rec staff. To explain to them what you would like kids to know by the time they get to you, to see what ideas they have, to exchange information. Good communication between rec and team staff is imperative in building an effective program.
This first video has some very nice stations for teach backward rolls. I especially like the first one, and the one with two panel mats is a GREAT one. Oh, and the colored floor beams at the beginning of the video, I use them EVERY DAY when coaching, they’re amazing.
This second video is a nice little circuit set-up. Circuits are a great way to keep kids active, engaged, and to incorporate conditioning and drills that don’t seem monotonous to kids. Note, these circuits can contain ALMOST ANYTHING.
