"A Game Sense Approach to Striking and Fielding"  Game Sense is a specific model that has come out of Bunker and Thorpe’s Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) that was developed in Australia during the mid-1990s through collaboration with Rod Thorpe and the Australian Sports Commission”(Thrope, 2006 cited by Pill, 2016). Students are presented with specific game challenges that they then solve while playing small sided games with modified rules, this approach is quite different from isolated skills-based from practice and big-group gameplay.  In this session, participants will play different Game Sense striking and fielding games that build in tactical complexity and focus on inquiry through teacher questions and problem-solving in various games.   Games include activities based around Kickball, Cricket, Softball and Danish Longball.
