1. USE AND ADAPTATION OF THE BALL
• The child has not yet fully developed their motor skills
and has difficulty to receive and control the ball.
Therefore games are made to become familiar with any
kind of balls.
2. MOVING IN THE FIELD
• Moving in the field
• We must learn to move around the field, since these ages
are lost on the track and the only thing that matters is
the ball (not the goal nor the rest of his teammates).
• To work this goal we can use games orientation.
3. RELATIONS BETWEEN PLAYERS
• Children between 8 and 10 years are very egocentric,

basic rules (the pot, double, areas and the difference
between goalkeepers and players).
• The games have very simple rules.

aspects in the best way possible need to propose the
most diverse types of activities.
6. EDUCATION IN VALUES
• Sport creates values appropriate to exercise various
situations. In this regard the work of the monitor is very
important because it is he who provide clarifications
children. The most noteworthy values that can be
worked through sport are these: Respect, tolerance,
solidarity, cooperation, equality, peace, care of nature ...
