MODIFIED GAMES

Modified Games Defined:


Resemble

the sport on which they are based, but adapted to suit the players age, size, ability, skill and experience.
(By Hilary Commission)

NATURE OF GAMES

Fundamentally revolves around solving a problem.


For

example: Volleyball: Strike ball over the net & inbounds in a way that the other team cannot return it.
Softball:

Put runners on base, and move them over by hitting the ball in a way that fielders cannot catch it on the fly.

TYPES OF GAME RULES

Primary Rules:

Define the way a game is played Changing a primary rule alters the game fundamentally. EXAMPLE?

Secondary

Rules:

Rules that can be changed without changing the fundamental nature of the game. EXAMPLE?

STRATEGIES USED TO MODIFY GAMES

Change the rules;

Change the size and type of equipment;


Change the size of field/court/playing surface;

Change duration of game;


Change scoring methods/rules; Change number of players; Change the movement of the ball/object (slower/faster). Ex: Sideline basketball; 3-Team Softball, 4-Goal Soccer

MODIFYING GAMES WITHIN A CLASS


GOAL: Arrange evenly matched competition to enable ALL students to enjoy the games and experience success. Competition A-Competition = Between-level, differences B-Competition = in equipment, rules, etc.

SMALL-SIDED GAMES
ADAPTED BY T. GOODMAN

Why Small-Sided Games?

Want Ss to receive quality ALT-PE, OTR, & maximum participation to help increase skill level; Fewer Ss on the playing surface = more possible times S will come in contact with the ball. Ss have no choice; the ball will quickly find them;
(3 v 3 = 1 ball per 6 players) vs. (11 v 11 = 1 ball per 22 players)

WHY SMALL-SIDED GAMES?

Want Ss to make more, less complicated decisions during the game - (less players on the field = less complicated decisions);

Want Ss to be more physically efficient in the space they are playing in (reduced field size); Want Ss to have more individual teaching time with the T - - feel worthy & important;

WHY SMALL-SIDED GAMES?

More opportunities to teach; o Allows T a perfect opportunity to observe and analyze the individual and collective responses of Ss under game-like conditions in a simple environment.
o

It is easier to teach on a smaller fieldeasier to observe.

WHY SMALL-SIDED GAMES?

Want Ss to have more involved playing time in the game; o More opportunity to solve problems that only game can present. More opportunity to play all positions; o More exposure to offensive and defensive situations...

WHY SMALL-SIDED GAMES?

Want Ss to have more opportunities to score goals, points, etc. which leads to more excitement & fun; o Smaller field size & fewer players fosters more shooting/scoring opportunities. The environment fosters development of social and mental skills; o Helps improve teamwork, communication, & competitiveness.

WHAT CAN BE TAUGHT?


Technique. . .

Every student will get multiple opportunities to use many of the skills involved in the game.
Tactics . . . Smaller numbers mean more opportunities for decision making by each student.

Transition . . .
Encourages fast play. No cushion of teammates to delay attack when possession is lost.

SMALL-SIDED GAMES

Small Sided environment is a developmentally appropriate environment for the Ss. Its a FUN environment that focuses on the STUDENT! It just makes sense...doesnt it?
