How to overcome opponents in sport

In this lesson, we will be expanding on movement patterns and decision-making in sport to learn how to outwit an opponent. We will explore how to produce coordinated movements to beat an opponent in invasion games, focusing primarily on handball. Please note this lesson will require some physical exercise and additional equipment, beyond a pen, pencil or paper. Please see the equipment slide near the start of the lesson video and make sure your child is adequately supervised when equipment is required. 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.
