Target Games

Using a Teaching Games for Understanding model in which games are broken up into four categories; invasion games, striking/fielding games, target Gaines and net/court games, this course will focus on the fundamental skills required to teach and participate successfully in both contested/opposed and uncontested/unopposed target-based activities. Students will receive instruction related to tactical problems for situations, first cognitively then execute the requisite motor performance. Participants in each of these activities strive to reach the best possible score by reaching a target using a bow and arrow, rolling a bowling ball, or choosing from a variety of golf clubs determining the power and placement of shots. The aim of a target game is to place a projectile near, or in a target in order to have the best possible score. (Forrest, Pearson & Webb, n.d.)
