'Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships' - Michael Jordan

In this course you will develop your ability to work with others in a team situation. You will take on a role - coach, captain, vice captain, referee, manager etc, and understand the impact that each of these roles have on the effective functioning of a team. Students will be given some choice as to which physical activity they would like to participate in. The assessment takes place over 1.1 and 1.2 and requires you to demonstrate interpersonal skills and to complete a diary about the impact of using these skills, on your team.

Alongside this, you will also look at what influences you to participate in physical activity. Is it because you love playing the game? Does it run in the family? Is it healthy to go for a walk each day? Should we know how to swim, living so close to the beach? Does the warm weather make you want to exercise? For everyone there are different reasons why they do or do not participate in physical activity. You will take part in a number of different activities and discuss what influenced you. This assessment will run through to the end of Term 2.

Please bring appropriate clothing for physical activity each lesson.
