About the event
- When our children spend too much time on thr train tracks of learning they can become conditioned to see only obstacles in their way - and this can restrict their ability to adapt on the field of play - of life. Games Coaches get players to play a version of basketball where the players can only progress by playing in the space between obstacles.
- It starts with players stopping themselves from seeing the opposition as obstacles to overcome - making it easier to see how opponents frame space. Then players harmonise seeing obstacles and seeing space - and see how to manipulate obstacles to open and close space - at the right time - into which they can flow. Players feel like they have all the time in the world as they wait for events to unfold before they act. Players take their ability to adapt on the field of play - to a new level. To be more fluid in their thinking to operate in creative flowing and resilient teams that adapt on the field of play to get a result. To always find ways to progress.
- Games Coaching is designed to work outside of a sports club infrastructure. No trials, no squads, no leagues.
- This session is younger teenagers.

What players and parents think
- We went to the most amazing basketball session in Hemel at Longdean school. My son is autistic and has ADHD he struggles to follow instruction and is extremely demand avoidant. This session took all the barriers away for my son and he had the most amazing time, his words “I loved it”. Well worth checking out
- A young players - "I like Jon’s sessions because instead of telling us what to do we all just work it out ourselves"
- A parent - "It’s refreshing to see someone run a sports session with a focus on kindness and flexibility instead of adherence to set patterns based on traditional ways of learning. We have always been made to feel welcome and encouraged to participate and my children gain confidence by being part of something that requires teamwork. As an observer, I enjoy seeing the players thinking about not just themselves but the whole team. It’s not about just playing ball, it’s about creative thinking, consideration of others and teamwork"
