What is game sense? Game sense is an instructional approach to sport teaching and coaching that emphasises the development of tactics and decision-making to develop an understanding of the game. It encourages students and players to develop technical skills by first recognising and understanding their importance within the context of games, rather than in isolation or as repetitive drills. Developing Game Sense through Tactical Learning - A Resource for Teachers and Coaches is written by two well-respected physical educators, experienced in all areas of skill development including primary, secondary, tertiary and elite sport settings. Ray Breed oversees the research, skill and training programs at the North Melbourne Football Club. Teamed with Dr Michael Spittle, an expert in skill acquisition and sport psychology, the authors have developed a resource that combines a mix of theoretical foundations and practical ideas for teachers and coaches of all skill levels.
