  1. ACTIVITIES Adapting Activities

  2. Adapting Activities • Sometimes the adult version of an activity is too difficult to learn. • To allow beginners or smaller children to participate successfully activities need to change.

  3. These adaptations can take various forms: • THE PLAYING AREA may be too large. • It will need to be made smaller so that the beginner/child can reach shots and will not get too tired trying to play on a full size area.

  4. THE EQUIPMENT may be too big or heavy. • Smaller, lighter equipment can be used to allow the beginner/child to take part.

  5. THE RULES may be too complex for the beginner/child to understand. • Only basic rules should be used to allow the beginner/child to be able to take part.

  6. THE SCORING SYSTEM may be too complicated. • Use a simplified version so the beginner/child can understand.

  7. THE TIME allocated to the activity may be too long. • A shorter period of time should be played, so the beginner/child can sustain the pace/play.

  8. THE NUMBER OF PLAYERS INVOLVED may be too high. • A smaller number should take part so the beginner/child will get more touches of the ball and will not feel left out.

  9. Often more than one of these adaptations needs to be used to allow beginners/children to take part successfully. TASK Choose an activity and describe how you would adapt it to allow a beginner or younger child to take part.
