What is a tactic? How do you decide a tactic? A tactic is a game plan decided before the game is played Tactical considerations are made about own strengths, opponent’s strength, own weakness and opponent’s weakness
Things to consider Knowledge of your own weakness and how do you protect it Knowledge of your own strength and how you use it Knowledge of your opponent’s weakness and how do you exploit it Knowledge of your opponents strength and how to beat it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZ2k-tsX5KE
Example…800m Starting tactic was to slipstream behind my opponent until the last 200/100m then out sprint the opponent Effect on performance; The opponent had a strong sprint finish and beat me to the finish A tactical change was to use my own strength of good stamina/ endurance to lead the race and gain a steady pace out in front Effect on performance; I was too far out in front that my opponent was not able to catch up, even with a sprint finish, and I won the race
Group Task… Select an individual and team activity Starting tactic – what was it and why did you choose it What happened in the game when you used this tactic (think about opponents) Tactical change – how did this affect the game?
