About the bonus practice
Our bonus practice is normally on Wednesday nights, but from time to time our Wednesday practice may be moved to Tuesday or Thursday or with weather permitting outdoors at Frankie Randolph Park, you will always be informed well in advance of what the practice schedule is going to be that week.
At your bonus practice, you will be learning something called the South Side Skills Assessment, which includes the 10/4, which you were already familiar with, and cone drills! The only way you’re going to pass the skills assessment is by deliberately practicing the drills over and over again. This is where your bonus practice comes in, we give you this bonus practice so you can practice your cone drills deliberately, and work on your form and technique, when your form and technique gets mastered, you will begin to get closer to meeting your skills assessment numbers. Always remember form first overspeed, you will never pass it if you’re not doing the form correctly.
You can find an example of the skills test here
