For our First Official Event, we aimed for Ultimate FUN approval from the kids.
Check out Preparation 1 for The Event below
PREPARATION 1: THE APPROACH
We used 4 Main Games at The Event
- STREET SOCCER
- TOUCH LEAGUE
- RALLY TENNIS
- PAIRS CRICKET
Read the Game Designs below and watch the clips to get an idea of what the game dynamics might look like.
Yes, they may well look and feel like School Playgrounds and Family Backyards! That’s a great sign that the Kids are engaged and interacting with each other and The Game. As Facilitators we can then observe and gain a sense of how the group and individuals are dealing with The Experience.
