(Spain, Greece,Hungary,Vietnam)

Spain: black and white. Standing in a line and by calling one of the colours catch the opposite ones before they will escape back to their “home” line.

They are allowed to move only when the counting is on, if the counter sees anyone moving after they have to start from the original point. Goal is to touch the counter and then run away. The one who is catched will be the next one to count.

O ———————————————————————————————————–

OBJECTIVE OBSERVATION (state of obvious facts)

  • What happened in the game? Explain the game and how did you find
    • Was the game physically hard for you?

R ———————————————————————————————————–

REFLECTION (CONNECTION WITH EMOTION)

  • How did you feel when you were caught and you could/couldn’t answer the question?
  • Did you feel enough support from the rest of the team?
  • Did the team take care of falling chairs enough or did they just try to avoid (connect the question with team work and team spirit within the team)

I ————————————————————————————————————

INTERPRETATION (ASSESSMENT & EVALUATION)

  • What did you learn during this exercise?
  • Do you think you have more knowledge about teamwork or leadership afternow?
    • Do you think that methodology of the exercise was correctly chosen?

D ———————————————————————————————————–

DECISION (ACTION/NON ACTION)

  • Do you think that after playing you became a better leader? In what sense?
  • Do you think that your personal acts might influent general relations among people?
    • What do you think that might be your next step you could take in active listening?

AIMS    – To discover a new sport and practise it in the beach.

DESCRIPTION:

Presentation of Ultimate:

Ultimate was developed in 1968 by a group of students at Columbia High School in Maplewood, N.J. Although ultimate resembles many traditional sports in its athletic requirements, it is unlike most sports due to its focus on self-officiating, even at the highest levels of competition. This concept, called Spirit of the Game, is integrated into the basic philosophy of the sport, written into the rules, and practiced at all levels of the game from local leagues to the World Games.

The Field: A rectangular shape with end zones at each end. A regulation field is 70 yards by 40 yards, with end zones 25 yards deep.

Initiate Play: Each point begins with both teams lining up on the front of their respective end zone line. The defense throws (“pulls”) the disc to the offense. A regulation game has seven players per team.

Scoring: Each time the offense completes a pass in the defense’s end zone, the offense scores a point. Play is initiated after each score.

Movement of the Disc: The disc may be advanced in any direction by completing a pass to a teammate. Players may not run with the disc. The person with the disc (“thrower”) has ten seconds to throw the disc. The defender guarding the thrower (“marker”) counts out the stall count.

Change of Possession: When a pass is not completed (e.g. out of bounds, drop, block, interception, stalled), the defense immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes the offense.

Substitutions: Players not in the game may replace players in the game after a score and during an injury timeout.

Non-contact: No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made.

Fouls: When a player initiates contact on another player a foul occurs. When a foul disrupts possession, the play resumes as if the possession was retained. If the player committing the foul disagrees with the foul call, the play is redone.

Self-Officiating: Players are responsible for their own foul and line calls. Players resolve their own disputes.

Spirit of the Game: Ultimate stresses sportsmanship and fair play. Competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play.

  1. I Will Remember To…

This brief activity provides an easy way for trainers to assess the final impact of their program on participants, while providing participants with an opportunity to commit to applying one key learning from the session.

First, ask participants to think of the most important thing they have learned while participating

in the class.

Then have them take turns completing the following statement (loud enough for everyone to

hear):

  • I will remember to:


Have a volunteer start and then move from one participant to the next until everyone has shared their statement. Instructors can participate as well, but they should not go first as that might prevent people from thinking of and sharing their own best idea.
