How can we outwit an opponent in sport?

In this lesson, we will expand on reactions and decision making to coordinate attacking play to overcome an opponent. We will apply this to invasion games, focusing primarily on football. We will explore various ways to move the ball to beat an opponent. Please note this lesson will require some physical exercise and additional equipment, beyond a pen, pencil or paper, to fully participate. Parents and carers are responsible for ensuring that children follow the correct safety advice provided at the start of this lesson and the instructions the teacher gives during the lesson. Parents and carers are responsible for supervising activities where required and for seeking medical advice in advance if your child has a medical condition that may prevent them taking part in physical activity.
