Teaching

As you learn about Rounders, you will play an important role in the development of how the game is taught in your school. Your knowledge will enable you to deliver high-quality lessons across the curriculum. You will learn how to teach a diverse range of aspects of the game, developing key physical literacy skills and tactical and strategic application of the rules. It will be your responsibility to instil confidence in every child and give them an enthusiasm for exercise and team sport, regardless of their natural ability.
