Although is group is different there are both similarities and differences in the way a coach has to deal with them. Although when you are teaching in pre-school and the children are unaware of sexual differences it is important to set a precedent and to make sure that they both have different changing rooms, there have been cases when children of mixed sexes have had to change ion class-rooms with no divider, even at a young age people can feel embarrassed about changing in front of other people let along members of the opposite, obviously it isn't quite so important at a young age but I think that if you start this type of procedure at a young age it can only be beneficial. When you go through primary school and secondary it is essential that there are separate changing rooms so in this regards you have to use the same procedure throughout even from as young as pre-school. One of the main things that you don't have to worry about in the first age groups is the issue of puberty and peoples size, the are cases of people starting puberty between 5 and 11 it is very uncommon and it would only be an isolate case. This means who don't have to worry about separating groups because of people's size it means that you don't have to separate people from their friends, which can be very hard for someone of a young age. It id very different when dealing adolescents, especially when dealing with sports like rugby, you could have a 13 year-old who is 6ft and 11 stone playing rugby with a 12 year-old who is 4ft 10 and weighs about 6 stone. It is you job as a coach that this sort of event doesn't happen apart from the obvious physical damage that may occur to the child you have to consider the psychological damage it may do, not only will the child be scared about doing PE for a long ...read more.


STUDENT NAME: RYAN AGE: 7 Ryan was a really good footballer and a really good person to coach, the one problem with Ryan was he lacked confidence and he seemed very shy. I tried to get him more involved in the group by doing some demonstration but he was very reluctant about doing them. He was probably the most talented person in the group and he showed a high level of skill a lot beyond his years. He certainly didn't have any trouble performing the drills and he didn't make many mistakes either. Strengths * He was good at passing * He was good at controlling the ball * He understood all the drills * He showed ability beyond his age Weaknesses * He lacked confidence and was quite shy. The major problem with confidence is that it is something that you cannot cure easily. In terms of his ability he is well above his age group he was by far the best footballer in the group and I would say he has played a lot of football outside school possibly with parents possibly with a team. I would actually say that it was with parents as I think if he played for a team outside school he would be less likely to be shy as he would have been used to playing and performing in front of others. I actually have a very strange recommendation for Ryan, I think he would benefit if he joined some drama clubs in school as I think that would bring him out his shell, there is no doubt that he has a lot of ability but he just needs a bit of confidence to go with it. By going to drama clubs he would get used to performing in front of people and then he would get the extra confidence to perform in front of others. ...read more.
