SKIPPING FORWARD AND BACKWARD
Set cones up in two (2) parallel lines about 10 metres apart.
Skip to opposite line and return.
Keep head up and eyes fixed on a point in front of you.
As you skip drive knee and opposing hand forward and up.
Be light on feet and aware of how your body is moving.
Quality not quantity, it is not a race.
Proceed to skipping backwards, all the time keeping your focus on the fixed point.
There should be an even tempo and ease of movement.
Participants should be balanced over the centre of their feet.
