Instruction for primary students (grades K-2) focuses on the acquisition and development of gross and fine motor skills. Basic locomotor skills and throwing, catching, kicking, and striking are emphasized. Developing social skills in a safe learning environment is also emphasized. In addition, sport-related drills and activities, and low-organized games provide opportunities for children to begin to use basic skills during activities.
Instruction for intermediate students (grades 3-5) focuses on transferring basic skills into sport-related drills, games, and modified sports. Emphasis is placed on working safely with others in both competitive (sports) and cooperative ("project adventure"-based group initiative) activities.
