   Some points to consider when using the Game-Centred

      A positive, safe environment is necessary, where students
       feel safe to take risks and try new things.

      Use strategies for grouping that ensure no-one is left feeling
       unwanted or excluded.
      Try to have small teams, aiming for maximum participation and
       high levels of physical activity.
       If students are on the sideline, make them involved eg. Give
       feedback to a player.
       Try to avoid students being “out” for long periods – modify the
       rules so that they come back in quickly.
      Consider using ability grouping sometimes. This allows a small
       group of students with a high level of skill to work together to
       modify activities and increase the challenge for themselves.
       Try to include skills teaching within games. If you decide skills
       practice is needed, use the peer-coaching process and make sure
       the skill is applied within the context of a game.
      Modify the games by changing the shape of the ball, or introducing
       sticks and ball.
      Through discussion, have students apply their learning to a range of
       Invasion Games eg. soccer, netball, rugby, hockey, basketball
      All students participate in giving and receiving feedback, problem-
       solving and goal setting.
