Penalty Kick Pressure Cooker
TOTAL TIME NEEDED
Consistency; performing under pressure
Require the emerging adult to demonstrate his or her consistency and poise under pressure by shooting ten consecutive penalty kicks in front of the opposing team’s bench (performed by the coming-of-age team!).
Appropriate sports equipment for the specific child. One volunteer to serve as goal keeper.
This test can be adapted to any sport or feat that requires accuracy and concentration and that is difficult to complete in the spotlight.
