Livy Schiele demonstrates an advanced agility drill where Melissa uses different types of chaos to distract the athlete. If the number Melissa says out loud is even, she reacts right, if it’s odd, she reacts left.

A cognitive chaos drill is one that requires an athlete to react based on the answer to a question. The goal of these drills is to decrease the amount of time it takes for an athlete to think and react. For example, instead of having an athlete run a set route, yell either “right” or “left” and have them react to that cue. Make it harder by yelling a simple math problem and if the answer is even then they would react and move to the right, if the answer was odd they would have to react to the left.
