This Volleyball Sport Education Season Booklet provides a template for a sport education season. This specific booklet uses Volleyball as the activity but this could be easily adapted to another activity or sport. The booklet outlines the aims of sport education, job roles week by week and lesson task cards to be completed each week in the season.
Aims of Sport Education
- Develops sport specific techniques and fitness.
- Appreciate and be able to execute sport specific strategic play.
- Share planning and administration.
- Provide responsible leadership.
- Work effectively within a group towards common goals.
The Sport Education approach believes in becoming affiliated with a team; carrying out skills practices with the team, and then applying them to competitive games. You should develop greater social skills and ability to work with others as a result of this, as well as see PE from a different perspective.
