Movement SkillsDuring each race, the movement demands of the players changed, including running, skipping, hopping and for the older players, more focus on strength work such as two-footed jumps and 'piggybacks' to increase physical workload.Hands (2012) highlights the importance of incorporating FMS in the early stages of a child's development. A study showed that a new skill can be learned in 9-10 hours, but correcting an established movement pattern can take up to 3 months.

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) "Process through which people learn to recognize and manage emotions, make good decisions, develop positive relationships and avoid negative behaviour." (Fredericks, 2003) Young players during the video were tasked to make quick decisions under pressure, sometimes working as a team to decide and sometimes making their own independent decision, which some team mates didn't like and reacted in a negative manner.

CreativityThis part of the session allowed the players to be creative and come up with their own ideas on how to be successful.Miller (2008) explains how a holistic education encourages experiential learning, including discussion, questioning and experimentation as part of active engagement in learning.

Conflict ManagementIdeal environment for children to learn how to work as a group and how to manage conflicts.Hartup (1996) says that children are more critical of their friends than of strangers. However Newcomb & Bagwell (1995) explains that children are more concerned about resolving disagreements with friends over strangers, therefore creating ideal situations for young children to learn about conflict management.Players were battling against each other and choosing which team to send further from victory, causing disagreements and creating opportunities to discuss and develop closer bonds as a group.

Part 4: Jokers!

Numeracy in SportTo finish the session, the group played 5 small sided games. In each game, one player was nominated as the joker. A standard goal was worth 3 points, a goal from the joker was worth 10. Teams had access to a white board to help keep track of their scores.

Sternberg's Triarchic Theory of Intelligence (1993) (Cited in Boyd, 2014) 1) Analytical Intelligence - IQ and achievement tests. Planning, organizing and memorizing facts. 2) Creative Intelligence - See connections between things, questions, experiments, uses theory in a different context to its original concept. 3) Practical Intelligence - Applying information to the real world, finding practical solutions to problems, reading social clues and persuading others to follow your view, leadership skillsSternberg (2006) highlights how schools prioritize the measuring of analytical intelligence, when creative intelligence and practical intelligence are just as important, if not more important when children enter the real worldSports can play a huge role in helping to develop the child holistically, encouraging the children to communicate, experiment, apply theory and knowledge and work as an individual, or as a leader of. a group or team member, to overcome real life problems
