Justify Its Inclusion In A School Setting
This sport, I believe, would work really well in a school setting because it is easily adapted, easily managed and controlled, requires very little equipment, can be played indoors or outdoors, contains skills that are used in other PE strands, involves fundamental movements skills (FMS), improves foot and eye coordination, develops and improves a wide range of kicking skills, and requires numeracy and literacy skills. It ticks all the boxes!
Skills In Other Strands = Kicking (Soccer, Gaelic Football)
FMS = Kicking
Kicking Skills Developed & Improved = Weight Of A Pass/Shot, Accuracy
Numeracy Skills = Adding & Keep Score
Literacy Skills = New Words (Lane Alleys, Weight Of A Pass, Pins, Foot Bowling)
