After the first session I think I’d like to keep a balance between basic skills, games and matches throughout our Walking Hockey sessions. It was noticeable in the matches we played (2 matches each of 8 minutes) that some people were less comfortable in competition. My intention is, over the project, to sort the players into ability based groups so everyone can get something out if each session.
Having said all of that, my overriding role will be to facilitate the Walking Hockey sessions so that the participants develop them into what works best for them. After all, it is they who have taken the time and made the effort to attend.
