Cooperative invasion games are team-based activities that promote teamwork, cooperation, communication, and strategy through small-sided games and activities. This module does address development of movement concepts, movement patterns, and strategic knowledge commonly associated with invasion sports. However, the focus for the activities included in this module is on the cooperative aspect of invasion games.
Students will develop and enhance communication skills, through teamwork and cooperation amongst their team by emphasizing collective goals and strategies. The activities within this module reinforce responsible behaviors, while introducing invasion game strategies and skills that may be new to some students. All participants are given the opportunity to explore the movement concepts in a fun and engaging environment where everyone can feel successful. This allows students to build connections with their classmates that can extend beyond physical education.
