18 IDEAS for developing PHYSICAL CAPABILITIES Play fun games that gets young people out of breath. Avoid stopping too often so that young people have sustained aerobic activity Play games that develop core strength when supporting balance development Try using skill circuits to show how different skills require different physical development Know which of your 'toolkit' of games are enjoyed by young people and good for enhancing energy levels. Use them to boost young peoples activity levels in your session.

19 IDEAS for developing TACTICAL CAPABILITIES Use modified games that promote awareness of different tactical situations. Look at Teaching Games for Understanding link for ideas Encourage participants to modify their own games using the STEP principles Space - bigger, smaller, narrower, wider, sections Time - allow longer time to keep possession to allow for decision making, have universal time outs for tactic discussions Equipment - bigger, smaller, standard, alternative, modified, from a different sport, try a Frisbee in invasion games activities /slow bounce balls in striking games to slow down play to teach tactics People - change the size of teams, smaller, uneven, larger Encourage participants to experience different roles and positions. Make sure they know what they might need to think about in a different way in different roles / positions

20 IDEAS for developing TECHNICAL CAPABILITIES Reassure participants who are re-learning technical skills. Give enough time to practice. Provide some ideas for how to practice at home Encourage young people to adapt techniques to suit their own abilities so that they can be effective players and join in games Let them observe how others make decisions. Give them an opportunity to talk to you about what they noticed and observed Set a variety of technical challenges for your participants. Let them decide which challenge they will work on first

21 IDEAS for developing MENTAL CAPABILITIES Discuss making mistakes openly. Admit your own in sessions Ask young people to think about what they will do if they make mistakes Ask young people what makes them anxious or worried in sessions Allow time for young people to talk to their peers about their successes / failures Encourage young people to think about their own motivations Find out what motivates your young people to take part. Ensure they have success in these motives. Offer choices for young people and let them be accountable for their decisions

22 IDEAS for developing CONFIDENCE Think of some of your games that foster curiosity - use them and show that you are also curious Ensure every young person has success EVERY session Know what success means for your young people. It might not be the same as yours. Winning isn't everything to many young people. Think about how you will recognise success How will you get young people to acknowledge their own success either publicly or privately

23 IDEAS for developing CONNECTION Help young people learn about each other and how they have things in common Learn all the names of your participants - model how to ask someone's name if you forget - we all forget and need help to develop strategies to ask again or find out without being embarrassed Think about if you need some boundaries for social media use. You need to understand how it can affect your sessions? Will you accept facebook friend requests? For more info follow this link to CPSU guidance for Using Social MediaCPSU guidance for Using Social Media Will you need to text, phone or your young people about your session? Find out more about Text and guidelines from CPSUText and guidelines from CPSU

24 IDEAS for developing CREATIVITY Praise innovation and creative thinking Demonstrate that experimenting and being creative can be successful. Role model how to manage failure of creative attempts Set personal challenges - either short, medium or long term ones Set group challenges - either short, medium or long term ones

25 IDEAS for developing CHARACTER and CARING Have a code of conduct with a clear outline of consequences and rewards - do this in partnership with your young people Consistently promote fair play Help young people to manage their own frustrations when playing - provide them with tips and things to try when feeling flustered and annoyed Do you know when special / stressful events are happening for your young people? Consider how you demonstrate you are aware of these and how it might affect attendance and participation levels birthdays / anniversaries school exams change in social / peer groups community events

26 IDEAS for developing COMPETENCE Consult with your group to find out what their interests are and what types of activities they enjoy Observe your groups to find out the different stages of physical and social development that they have. Note ideas for individuals who may need additional support Pitch activities of the right level for your participants and for what they want to achieve out of your session Act as a role model when coaching - dress appropriately, be on time, courteous, healthy behaviours (smoking, eating, drinking, exercise)

27 IDEAS for developing LIFESTYLE SKILLS Respect the independent choices young people make - even if you disagree Understand the national recommendations for physical activity for young people Try and have your session meet some of these aspirations Department of Health link for guidance on physical activity levels for 5-18 year olds
