Objective: To begin a relationship with students and their families through a one on one evaluation. This is an opportunity to determine the best class for the athletes and to show families how valuable our program is.Schedule:00:00-00:15 – warm-up & tumbling complex (begin with the basics work until athletes cannot progress)00:15-00:25 – drills (working on the most difficult skill from part 1)Task List:

  1. Find students for the evaluation (they will usually be upstairs waiting)
  2. Start with a quick Warm-up (Run down & back 3 times)
  3. Do a quick stretch (wrists, ankles, bridges)
  4. Move in to a tumbling complex;
  5. Tuck rolls

ii. Straddle Rolls

iii. Backwards rolls

  1. Cartwheels
  2. Handstands
  3. Round-offs

vii. Bridge walk

viii. Backbend

  1. Handstand fall to bridge
  2. Handstand forward roll

xiii. Etc.

    1. When you arrive at a skill that needs work, stop there and set-up your stations (2-4 stations, depending on the number of students in the evaluation – discretion required)
    2. If a student struggles immediately with a forward roll, continue through to round-offs and bridge walk – do not just stop at forward rolls – give the student the illusion of having some beginner skills – however; never allow students to perform skills that will cause them injury – discretion required
    3. When there are approximately 5 minutes left in class, switch to conditioning and splits to evaluate strength and flexibility
    4. Do 10 (belly-button to the floor) push-ups, 10 sit-ups and 10 v-snaps
    5. Stretch through splits and hold for 15 seconds on each leg
    6. At the end of the lesson, meet with the parents of the students in the class to let them know what class(es) their child should register for/attend/etc.
    7. Make sure that the private evaluation is a fun experience for the students – don’t make them feel like they’re being evaluated – they should feel like they are participating in a private lesson
