Net/wall games can be difficult for many students and teachers for several reasons. For students, it's sometime hard to get involved in games like volleyball where highly skilled players tend to hog the court. Or in games like badminton/tennis, the extension of the arm (racquet) proves very difficult for the less skilled player.  Sometime teachers find net games difficult to teach because they lack the equipment and/or space needed to teach effectively.
This session will explore small group games that enable the teacher to accommodate large groups in a station or tournament setting. Learn how to enable the learners to progress toward proficiency in a particular skill(s).  We have found that skill repetition to be at a high frequency using these game-like situations. Please consider attending this session to add a bit more net game learning for your secondary students.
