Spatial Awareness Leftfoot Coaching Academy

Setup

Acquire an equal number of cones as students in the session. Alternate both blue and orange cones in a stack. Split the stack in two and start back-to-back near the side gate with another coach or intern. Begin walking forward in a circle away from each other. Place a cone every 3-4 paces until you end face-to-face with the other coach or intern.

Make sure the cones look equally spaced and alternate colors. Place a cone of any color in the center of the circle.

Lay out an equal number of balls as students in the session next to the circle so the students don't have to get them themselves.

Warmup

Warmups will begin at the space the student is at. The students will do the stretches towards the central cone then back to their original space.
