There are 7 key skills we need to increase our sprinting skills.
- Eyes straight ahead.
- Light feet.
- High knees.
- Bent arms.
- Cheek to cheek arms.
- Run straight.
- Run tall.
Check out these photos of us practicing. Can you tell which skill we were practicing?
The skills we focused on for our starts are:
- Look straight ahead (not at the starter!)
- What to do on the starters calls (Take your mark, set, go)
- Improving our reaction time (the amount of time it takes us to get moving once we hear the signal to go).
We are very excited about athletics day which is coming up in week 5! We will be able to put all of our athletics skills to use.
