There are a number of ways to develop your athletes' skills and understandings.
In developing skills and understanding:
- Consider the stage of development of your athlete(s)
- Start in a simple way that ensures success, enjoyment and safety
- Gradually modify the game/activity/drill to make it more challenging.
Canoe Racing NZ is encouraging a Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) approach where the learning occurs in a game or game like activity. Try the one on the right.
