Junior - Practice with Purpose Badge: 2 Hour Troop Adventure.
1.Decide on goal
3. Build strength
4.Drill for skill
“When I’ve earned this badge I will know how to set a sports goal and practice to achieve it.”
“Building your strength”- Before the Girls come out, they can download a pdf from our website with exercises to practice for a week or two before coming to fly.
Decide on a goal: We will take time to get to know one another and discuss their fitness goals. We will then discuss their goal for the day. The goal for some may be to accomplish a knee hang to a catcher on the flying trapeze, for another it may be to accomplish a knee hang on their own on the low trapeze, or somewhere in between. We will discuss the process of Flying Trapeze. We will talk about the importance of setting goals, and the importance of practice. This includes visualization as a practice. We will discuss how no athlete reaches their goals without taking baby steps, and without practice. We will talk specifically about a few of the great trapeze artists and what they were able to achieve through hard work and practice.
“Drill for Skill”- We first learn all of the necessary skills for the Flying Trapeze on the ground. We will learn and practice properly jumping off the board, body position while in the air, about patience and timing. We then use the low hung trapeze to practice getting into a knee hang on the low bar.
“Practice, Practice, Practice”- Once they are comfortable with this, they get to climb the ladder to the high Trapeze. Throughout the process this girls will be protected by safety lines. Girls will use their newly obtained skills to swing on the Flying Trapeze. They will use their practiced patience and body skills to get into a knee hang and finally when they have worked their way through these steps, and have gained confidence in their abilities, and are able to do a knee hang, they will have the thrilling opportunity to perform their new knee hang trick to the catcher and swing in his/her hands.
We will wrap up the day with a summary and discussion of their experience. What happened when things got tough? How did they deal with fear or anxiety? Could they see how much they improved through their hard work, diligence and practice?
No Experience Necessary
We will meet each girl at her capacity and guide her to succeed.
