Tactical small-sided games: Developing players’ collaboration and problem-solving skills
Presented by Gareth Long – ACPE
AFL clubs strive to provide the perfect environment for kids to have fun learning through play, make new friends and create memories that last a lifetime.
In this workshop coaches will explore how tactical small-sided games (SSGs) can be designed and delivered to also develop players’ collaboration and problem-solving skills.
Designing SSGs that motivate and engage players and help them become ‘thinking players’ isn’t always easy. In this workshop you will be presented with some SSGs games, share great games from your own clubs, and possibly design some new ones! Either way you will leave with some great new games to try with your players.
