Invasion games and 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. This module builds on the Invasion Basics module for grades 3-5 and provides lead-up activities and small-sided games aimed at developing the movement concepts, movement patterns, and strategic knowledge commonly associated with invasion sports.

In addition, the activities within this module develop and reinforce responsible behaviors, while introducing strategies and skills that require teamwork and cooperation in order to be successful. 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.
