Sport Education Model
The sport education model has several distinctive characteristics:
season involves a series of consecutive lessons (for example, 14 to
20), and involves pre-season activities, practice and competition.
Students become members of teams for the duration of the season and
assume roles of coach, manager, and so on, as well as being players.
The competition involves pre-season preparation, in-season
competition, and a culminating event or festival that provides an
appropriate climax to the end of the competitive season.
Records may include outcomes of matches and player performance.
The festivity of sport can be encouraged through a sports notice
board, team photos, uniforms, and honoring the rituals and
traditions of the particular sport.
The sport education model provides students opportunities to:
- participate in a realistic context,
- explore ideas in, through, and about sport,
- develop knowledge and skills, team identity, and social
- take ownership and responsibility for their learning,
- plan and implement the program,
- be challenged through peer support, peer encouragement, and
- value their contribution to the team, and
- receive personal and specialized skill and behavioral learning
program due to the teacher being free from full class direct
