This unit is internally assessed and externally moderated by OCR.
UNIT AIM: Most people who work in sport and physical activity do so because they are passionate about their particular sport or activity, a passion that is usually borne out of participating themselves. An effective coach or leader is able to demonstrate skills accurately or offer detailed explanations of tactics and strategies because they have experienced them themselves through their own participation. Knowing the technical and tactical demands of a sport will also help to inform if it is appropriate for other individuals to participate in.
This unit gives you the opportunity to participate in a number of different sports and outdoor and adventurous activities which allows you to experience first-hand situations that participants you may later be coaching or leading will come across. In this unit you will learn how to apply skills, tactics, techniques and knowledge in individual sports, team sports and outdoor and adventurous activities which will allow you to participate effectively, safely and enjoyably.
