Instead of bringing in a team of coaches to run the session, we teach the school’s older students (usually Year 11 and above) the reason why the inclusive games were invented, how they are played and then how they can host the games for their younger peers.
As with our Mainstream Model we use between 3 and 8 activities – we choose with you from sitting volleyball, new age kurling, visually impaired football, boccia, goalball, table top games (paddle bat, table cricket, and table tennis), floor lacrosse, and parachute games, flexing the choice to the number of participants, the age and size of year groups and the available space. We can (at extra cost) source wheelchair basketball too.
The benefits are manifold. The older students
- experience the art and science of teaching others;
- learn how to control their juniors;
- learn how to problem-solve and to respond to challenges as they occur;
- learn to adapt their teaching style to the different needs of younger students; and
- through teaching, absorb the lessons from the various sports and activities.
And the younger students
- have the fun of working with older students;
- learn, in a practical way, the benefits of teamwork, trust and co-operation; and
- of course, gain all the benefits of learning about inclusive sports.
