Movement Preparation

Dynamics

Movement Preparation: Mini Skip

• Athletes perform a basic skipping action at low intensity

• Look for good rhythm and form

• Lift knee, bent at 90 degrees

• Heel aligned under knee, toes up (flexed)

• Arms swing opposite to knee lifts (e.g. left leg, right arm)

• Bend arms at 90 degrees, lock elbows

• Arms swing from the shoulder, hands travel hip‐to‐lip

PROGRESSION: Increase the amplitude (distance) of each skip by saying “now skip for distance”
