What is a technique? A technique is a way of performing a skill Examples… Basketball – Passing (chest, bounce) Basketball – Shooting (lay-up, set shot)
Task – for the following skills, name two techniques Football – passing Badminton – clear Table tennis – push
Why use different techniques? Football – I used a header to pass the ball because the ball came to me above shoulder height and I didn’t have time to let it come down to my feet Why use… An overhead clear in badminton? A bounce pass in basketball? A tip rather than a spike in volleyball?
