The Bucket Challenge for Training



There are a few times a year where the students seem to just start to wilt. Energy is low, enthusiasm seems to wane, it just starts to feel like a struggle for them and let’s be honest, for you too as a coach or teacher. You are feeling the strain of ‘bringing it’ week after week.


These are the weeks that learning new material seems impossible, and they just melt under the pressure and perceived boredom of a ‘review week’


We have a great solution to those doldrums that not only gets them excited about the work but helps them start to put a shine on their technique…..all without them knowing it! Wink


We have what we call the Bucket Challenge.





We take all the elements that they have learned. ALL of them from the simplest elements to the ones they have just started working on, and we write them on little slips of paper that we fold and pop into a bucket. Then after warm up, you guessed it, they each come and pull a slip of paper and they have to go and execute that element with the cleanest form they can!


Once they have done that they get to come back and pick a new slip of paper and go and execute that element with the cleanest form they can!
