YMCA Academy faculty members:
Nicole Klement & Zareh Demirdji
were invited to present their Physical Education Program at a Government of Ontario training session for provincially funded after-school youth programs.
The Academy implemented a TGfU program three years ago when staff and students were struggling to play sports with small groups and to have game understanding take precedence over game skills. After one semester of TGfU both staff and students were sold on the program. We have been playing TGfU style games since.
This training session, entitled The YMCA Academy’s teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) Program, will soon be released as a webinar and currently all materials and resources from the training session can be accessed via the YMCA Academy’s site. (Click here for the Presentation)
