|Post subject:||Resource links|
I just returned from a staff training weekend for the Illinois Pathfinder clubs and I shared a lot of links that I thought to post on this forum.
Please check out the links, share them with your conference clubs and feel free to add more useful links to this string as you discover them.
This is the best clip out there of a dedicated team executing basic drill. This is important: LEARN THE BASICS
Flash is trash without the right discipline. You can always tell when a club has good leadership and put in a lot of practice by their discipline.
The clip is the US Naval Academy "Jolly Rogers" during an inspection. Imagine the rifles as parade batons. Take special note of the "snap" and "pop" of the movements and how the ranks PIVOT on the column movements vs doing a "wheel" like so many clubs want to do.
Click the "Media" button to the left and there will be links to download a bunch of clips of the US Naval Academy. They are all exhibition performances and some practices and inspections. The ones that show how the team moves into different formations would be especially useful.
This link is to a site where discs are available of all the winners from the Nationals drill event. As armed drill would not be applicable in this forum, obviously the unarmed exhibition would be what to focus on.
The Devoted disc is a compilation of all the best high school drill teams and some professional teams such as the Kings Guard and the USMC Silent Drill team.
http://www.youtube.com and google video have a lot of other clips that you can search for using the keywords: exhibition (or) unarmed drill. I discourage using any moves that look too much like cheerleaders or macarena. Clapping under the leg just looks dumb, especially with girls in skirts. Typically the exhibition drill is not judged so the only points you will lose is "cool" points.
If anyone saw the Hindale Fil-Am Challengers Pathfinder club fancy drill performance at the Lake Union Conference Camporee last month then you saw my club. The drill team is mastered by Tiffany Fronda and Geoff Basilio, both teen staff members who are also great leaders.
We have a video of that performance that I will get a link for once it is hosted online. Until then - take good care and God bless - - -

Hey, these are great, and I liked watching the youtube video clip. I'm looking for more video type resources on drilling and marching, so if anyone has more ideas, let me know.
