Introduction

Sports Leadership - Evalutation In this assignment I am going to look at my 6 hockey sessions, I will be looking at the sessions so I can asses myself on sports leadership and to look at ways of how I can improve. My session included taking a group of year 8 girls for 6, 50-minute P.E lessons. The majority of the girls were beginners apart from a few that were slightly more experienced therefore a few activities were adapted for them as well as using them for demonstrations. I planned my sessions into 4 sections this consisted with a warm-up to start off, then the main section was split into 2 parts the first part being a skills and drills activity and then the second part being a match to practise the skills they had learnt. I then had a cool-down and an opportunity to give participants feedback at the end of each session. Within my plan I included a risk assessment at the beginning of every session to ensure there wasn't any risk to participants. To ensure all my sessions ran smoothly with as little problems as possible I included medical and particular needs information of the participants, I had contingency plans for any problems which may have occurred and I had my risk assessment to cover all health and safety issues. ...read more.

I arranged my sessions after thinking about what needed to be done before moving onto another skill an example of this is all of the girls needed to be able to dribble before I could teach them how to shoot and defend. My timing needs to be improved on, as many participants took longer than expected to get ready and prepare themselves for the session therefore the matches at the end were shorter than I would have liked them to be. Although the timings weren't as good as I planned this was down to the participants rather than myself, I was organised at the beginning of each session with equipment laid out ready for the girls to use. Equipment and the facilities were not a problem there were always enough hockey sticks, balls, cones and bibs to use so my contingency plan wasn't needed for the equipment and the facilities were always usable. My warm-ups went well and I managed to stick to my plans there were a few girls willing to help out therefore I was happy for them to lead some parts of the warm up as this got them involved and motivated for the session. My main content generally went well with the majority of girls motivated and taking part there were 2 girls that didn't want to get involved therefore I had to speak to them and get them motivated so they would keep warm. ...read more.

Conclusion

I supported the entire group the subgroup that found the skills hard and didn't want to take part I took to one side and gave them extra support so they could progress at their own level. There was also individuals that found the skills easier so I challenged them by adding in extra movements making the skills more difficult but still achievable and I got them to umpire and lead warm ups so they could play a more active role within the group to encourage others to follow. The group as a whole worked well and cooperated with me all the way through I encouraged motivation by trying a range of different activities that involved everyone being active and made the games enjoyable so the girls would enjoy taking part. I got good feedback from Miss Winstanley and the girls, Miss Winstanley said I put the session across clearly with confidence and interacted with the girls well. The girl said they enjoyed the sessions, as they were fun and different to P.E lessons that they normally have. From these comments I feel I have achieved all of my aims of promoting participation and enjoyment and being an effective sports leader. The comments from the girls showed they enjoyed the sessions and more of them wanted to join in as the session went on. Miss Winstanley comments show that I managed to put across a good leadership sessions. Abbie O'Brien ...read more.
