Teaching Games for Understanding - Back to the Basics
Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) was developed in the 1980s by Rod Thorpe, David Bunker and Len Almond. They were looking for a better way to teach games in a PE context. Nearly 40 years later, TGfU has become one of the best known and followed approaches, not only in PE, but also in sport coaching. In this blog, Leeds Beckett Sport Coaching Principal Lecturer and Leeds Force Basketball Coach Dave Piggott spells out the key components of the TGfU model and their implications for coaches. He even provides some video examples of some great games. Time to play!
