GETTING HANDS TO GROUND, ENVIRONMENTAL STABILITY CHALLENGES

For those of you who don’t know, one key component of Aussie Rules Football is having the freedom to efficiently pick up a chaotically bouncing oblong ball off the ground in a variety of positions. For Travis we wanted to create an awareness around a balanced foot to allow for “stability” and “mobility” in the appropriate ascending joints. To foster this awareness, we put him on many different surfaces so his skin and brain could start communicate a bit more often and feel different organizations of movement. Notice the big difference in organization when he’s on the skateboard vs stable ground objects. We will integrate these advances in his skill on the field today. @travisboak10 @pafc #apiros #apirospodcast #travisboak #portadelaide #portadelaidepower #afl #aussierulesfootball

(Sound on, Part 1/2) Some of the field work that Travis initiated to work on during his visit were his marking and ground ball abilities. Marking is what you see in this clip. Early in this field session, it was apparent that Travis could put himself in a more powerful and stable position to create space and jump for a ball. This first clip served as a teaching example for Travis upon immediate review. When we asked him what I was doing differently than him, he was able to figure out the answer on his own (with a little guidance). We broke the skill down into more simplified pieces so he could gain an awareness of how to posture his body in a more advantageous position. Then we progressively reintroduced more specific stimuli into the mix. Needless to say, he picked it up joyously and quickly. That’s his motus operandi. @travisboak10 @pafc #apiros #apirospodcast #travisboak #aussierulesfootball #aussierules #portadelaide #portadelaidepower
