Workshop Practice, in Practice – A Functional Workshop Structure Method

Power Clap

Fun, energize

Instruct the players to stand in a circle, with the left foot towards the center. Then instruct them to rub their hands together until they are nice and warm (energized). Then instruct them to slowly bring the top hand up above their heads.

Tell them that you will count down from three and that on “one” they will all clap and shout “yes” three times.

It end when you have done it 🙂
