Get in the Game – an introduction to Sport

*Full Day Activity*

Come and join us at the outstanding KCOM Stadium for a full day of sporting activities and the opportunity to use some top of the range equipment.  Your day will be split into four activities:

Session 1 – Read all about it!!

Using current news media as a source, you will become a sports news reporter and produce a front page article based on current, real life issues in sport, such as drugs, money, ticket prices or broadcasting rights.

Session 2 – If it ain’t broke…

Here you will look at the wide range of potential injuries in sport and learn about physiotherapy & applying first aid. Using medical training equipment you will demonstrate different techniques, including CPR, recovery positioning, bandaging and splints and dealing with head injuries.

Session 3 – Testing, testing, testing

Take part in a number of physical tests and look at how the tests are designed to assess different components of fitness. Using modern testing equipment you will learn how to test speed, reaction times, power, strength, agility and co-ordination, finally comparing results to those of elite athletes.

Session 4 – Go, Team!

Time to play! You will look at a variety of sports and relevant techniques and take part in a mini tournament in either football, tag rugby, rounders, hockey or track & field.

At the end of your day you will have a better understanding of careers in Sport and the courses you could progress onto following year 11, such as Levels 1, 2 & 3 Sport, Level 2 Gym Instructor, Academy Sport and coaching qualifications, as well as taking home your what you create during the day.

The Sport taster includes physical activity so students must bring sports kit, trainers and a bottle of water.
