Invasion sports involve an offensive team working to maintain possession of an object while attacking (or invading) a defensive team’s goal or target area. Development of specific skills and skill combinations that involve passing, receiving, shooting, and defending are targeted learning outcomes. Classic invasion sports include soccer, basketball, football, hockey, ultimate, and rugby. This module provides lead-up activities aimed at developing the motor skills, movement patters, and strategic knowledge commonly associated with invasion sports.
This module includes activities that use the GenMove MultiGoal. This piece of equipment is recommended because it is versatile and provides for developmental adaptions that enhance student learning. However, it’s important to remember that any activity can be modified to work with equipment that you have on hand.
