Check this out, multiple baton coaches and judges!
I came across this on You Tube. I found this to be a very interesting and an incredible example of timing, accuracy of placement not to mention the use of space. ….. QUALITIES which are all displayed in our multiple baton events!
Watch and see if you notice how timing and hand-eye coordination are not only crucial for the execution but creates a syncopated melodic beat as well.
While watching this video, I couldn’t help but think how musicality can aide our athletes rhythmically speaking. Upon finding this video, I was eager to see more. There are many examples of triangle juggling on You Tube and juggling in general which can be a useful tool when teaching an array of skills in 2 and 3 baton; from the basic juggles to the ongoing complexity of combinations incorporating various patterns and planes! Let’s unleash our creativity and work on developing a variety of syncopated timing skills in our multiple baton programs!
GOOD LUCK and let the rhythm of the beat drive your creativity!
