Fundamental to effective practice for leaders in the sport, coaching, physical education and exercise science industries are (i) a sound knowledge of, and (ii) practical skills in, team games; along with (iii) an ability to provide safe and effective learning environments that enhance fundamental motor and ball handling skills. This knowledge and skill base is consistent with professional standards for the sport and physical education industries. This unit is designed to provide students with an understanding of the skills needed to participate in, and teach, a variety of age–appropriate team games. A leadership perspective is used to explore teaching and coaching strategies; group organisation; communication skills; ways in which team games can relate to exercise science principles; and the different ways that team games can contribute to life–long physical activity participation. The unit aims to provide students with the ability to deliver and evaluate effective team game experiences, and the opportunity to enhance their understanding of the role a leader plays in the implementation of team games.
