About the event
We are a community club for everyone who wants to play - a range of sports - to be a little less perfect and a lot more connected. How do we do this? By playing basketball etc while using the 3rd skill. The first two skills are technical knowledge and mechanical execution. The 3rd is the skill of connection. It is the spatial awareness and timing to co-create something out of the space between the people around us. We all need - all three skills.
A mix of technologies has increased our ability to measure and rank everyone by the first two skills. This increased motivation means many of us only learn the first two skills. We all need - all three skills. We correct this by playing basketball while using the 3rd skill.
When we have the 3rd skill we avoid being fragile straight-line thinkers. We avoid being totally reliant on being able to perfectly execute our strategic plan. We adapt as we go - to find a way. We take actions with more connection and a little less perfection. More creative, expressive, adapting, accepting, kinder, and more fun to play basketball with. We connect while being a little less perfect.
We play by constantly switching between a narrow focus on the ball and the bigger picture to see how we move to create something out of the space between us. It is a process of connection that is supported by a Games Coach. The best people to explain the 3rd skill are the governing body of the people who coach the 3rd skill. This is there website. All our coaches belong to it. GamesCoaching.ORG

What the players say
"They are fun. They are stress free. Jon - has a way of teaching that I don't feel I am are being told what to do. I am encouraged to make my own choices and then supported with the decisions I make. There is no wrong decision. Only learning opportunities. Jon always finds a way to make feedback constructive and positive to help me make my own evaluations about my performance and how I can improve. He is supportive while pushing you to always be better and reach maximum potential".
Lets play ball
We are a social enterprise. We use all profits to give those who are excluded or vulnerable to social exclusion a free experience of playing sports and games where everyone set's each other up to succeed. Where everyone constantly imagines other ways. Where everyone uses mistakes to find what is next and grow. Experiences to build a belief that they are not stuck as they are now. Thank you.
