Everything that has been written I agree with, being a level 2 Coach at a few sports athletics being my main sport, I feel Uka athletics have it right uka use 365, this is a huge file that shows how your athletes are progressing what athletes need to do to progress further onto the next level, it's fun and easy to follow and gives great tips and ideas for both coaches and athletes.

I had a conversation with my twin daughters a few days ago, I asked them how was Pe in schoo! the reply wasn't what I was expecting, the answer was boring and we keep doing the same thing week in week out, my daughters are 14 and in secondary school they say Pe isn't fun but the girls being athletes themselves are asked to compete in athletics if they loose in these competitions the PE teacher tells them she's not happy instead of praising the children for attending and taking part and represented the school.

I feel more sports coaches should be sent into schools to teach Pe to help teachers understand each individual sports and even in secondary school to still make Pe fun and exciting with also a competitive element.

I travel throughout nottinghsmshire primary schools, I make Pe fun and exciting but also a competitive element to the lessons, why does this have to change when children go to secondary school?

I feel children learn more easily through fun and exciting activities no matter

Great advice here John
Makes me think about how our coaches would always split up me and my friends in sessions into different teams....with the intention of avoiding poor behaviour. Hopefully times have changed and the social aspect is more highly valued
