Verbal Transcription of Lab C

(To Entire Class)

We’re playing everyone’s it tag okay, everyone is it, everyone can be tagged. Anyone can tag anyone. This half of the court, within the cones. On your mark get set go!

If you get out, take a ball and start passing with a partner.

Pass it ten times with a partner and then go back in.

Go back in, we’re still playing come on.

(To Tony)

Everyone’s it tag.

(To Entire Class)

Whistle. Alright bring it in.

Yea. Hello mates (in Australian accent), Everyone welcome to Australia, do we have any people go to different countries, any world travelers here? Anywhere? No one’s traveled outside the US?

That’s okay. We’re all we’re all going to Australia today, no permission slips necessary. And we are playing Buroinjin.

What’s Buroinjin? I’m sure your all thinking that. So quick little explanation.

It’s very similar to football or rugby. And how you bring the ball across the opposing line, exactly the same thing, except if your tagged in this game you have to throw the ball at least 5 meters away, and anyone can catch it then you continue the play.

Balls never dead if it drops, you simply pick it up and keep going.

You cannot dive on the floor, that is our biggest safety concern okay, if the ball is on the ball is on the floor you just pick it up.

You can’t punch or kick the ball, but you can slap it with an open hand.

And you can’t catch your own ball after throwing it up when you were tagged.

Might be a bit much, so I have a short little clip for you guys to watch of some kids playing Buroinjin.

If you can see there just, they run to the end line they pass it they dribble it. You can use anything, a bounce pass cause it’s never dead, always moving. When you get tagged you just simply throw it up and the game continues. Okay?

Every one kinda understand more? Good.

Another fun fact about Buroinjin is that when the old tribes used to play they made the balls out of kangaroo skin, stuffed it with grass, and sewed it together with tendons.

Arent we glad we use soccer balls today right?

Okay and another thing that the Australians did and they still do today is that they cheer each other on by yelling Ei, Ei, Ei!

So today when you cheer on your teammates and partners, what are you going to be yelling?!

Great, also I want you to be able to get some offensive skills and tactics in by the end of today.

First drill that we’re doing is called dingo dodging. Alright.

I don’t know if you saw but one of the best ways to get past an opponent is to simply dodge them so if I could have everyone just turn around and two volunteers to help volunteer in the dingo dodging drill.

Greg, good, alright.

What we’re going to do it one person is going to line up by that cone and the other one is going to be on this cone and you’re going to have your defender in the middle.

Okay Greg, is going to run up with a dribble. Run and then he’s going to use any of the cues. So he can side step around me and then pass it off.

It okay nice try.

Or he could, can I have the ball back?

Or he could do a spin dodge around me. And pass the ball over.

(To Greg)

Can you stay here for a sec. ?

(To Entire Class)

A really big common mistake some people do is they’ll come up and it’s too late, arm reaches out and they’re done.

You wanna make sure you have space, dodge, and pass.

So we are going to work on that drill for a while. Everyone grab two friends, get some cones, so you’re going to have a group of three, alright get out there.

Grab a ball too, balls are over there, line up on the cones with someone in the middle.

Before you start (some unknown words) and listen to my whistle, alright it is my signal for attention.

Guys line up on the cones (5:53….6:55 unknown ).


(To Greg)

Can’t hear.

(To Tony)

Nice spin dodge!

(To part of Class)

Cant here, general feedback.

(To Entire Class)

Whistle. Alright ……..Also if you are on offense, count how many times you get around the defender, and the person in your group who gets the most you know times around is the winner . So active defender try that out.

If you are on defense I want you to try!

30 more seconds of this drill, now really try!

Okay bring it in, hustle!

Okay another really big thing to do okay, we’re doing the great reef catching drill. You have to catch when your on offense right? You need to catch the ball and move so what we’re doing, if everyone can face this way again.

You’re going to have a partner and that partner is going to throw it to you at different angles.

It might be going down, or it might be up high in the air.

So some cues you have to remember is to be on your toes, knees bent, hands up, and eyes alert. So it’s a nice athletic position.

I might go from the side, any which way okay try to psych them out, don’t tell them which way your going.

So grab a partner, grab a cone you don’t have to stand this far apart as they are anymore but try it out for a few minutes alright.

Hustle to your spots everyone!

Really try to psych them out!

(To Tony)

Next time try to be a little more aware, a little more ready.

(To Andy)

Try to bend your knees a bit more next time.

(To Entire Class)

Whistle. Alright everyone bring it in!

Now I am going to send you guys down to Holly to work on some defense so pay attention to her.
