In our previous post we used the MyFloorball App to create a simple rebound control drill. In this post we want to use it to create a simple movement drill. The focus here is not only on sideways movements, but also on forwards and backwards movements. Note: We are not sponsored by MyFloorball. This post is based on our own ideas and wasn't influenced through third parties.
How to do it?
What do you need?
Four Pylons, with two of the same colour (e.g. two red and two yellow)
We recommend using the colours that are used in the app – red, green, yellow
We assume that we use two red and two yellow pylons.
Place the two red pylons 2.5 – 3.0 meters away from each other
Do the same for the yellow pylons and make sure that you set them also 2.5 – 3.0 meters away from the red pylons
The pylons should form a square now
Open the MyFloorball App
Set the “Interval” to 4 seconds
We recommend this for the first time, you still can switch to a shorter interval afterwards
Set the “Time” to 30 seconds
Choose the colors red and yellow
Type the white arrow in the top right corner
Choose your Sound Option
We recommend "Screen + Sound"
Place you mobile phone or tablet outside the square where you have a good sight on it
-Now the app will show and tell you a color, we assume that it is red
Move to the red pylon
After 4 seconds, the app switches to another color, we assume it’s yellow
Move to the yellow pylon parallel to your current pylon
- Now the app switches to a new color, we assume it’s yellow again
If you moved to the yellow pylon in the back, you now move to the yellow pylon in the front, or vise versa
The new color is yellow again
You move to the other yellow pylon
The app switches to red
You move to the red pylon parallel from your current pylon
Repeat till the app stops the exercise
With this drill you can easily train all movement forms. If you want to push one movement certainly, we suggest you to stick to one movement, e.g. only use push movement when moving to a different side. Also a huge advantage is that you aren’t only doing sideways movements, but also forwards and backwards movements. If you think you are fast enough, just set a shorter interval time to make it more difficult. You can also use this drill as an easy warm-up.
