Are You Ready to Protect the Universe?
The Galactic Strike Force program is a U8 player development program that is the second in a series of three programs that have been developed to assist administrators and parent coaches in the growth and development of players. This 10 week, age specific program involves the coaches (Strike Force leaders) taking their players (Strike Force Cadets) on a space adventure to defend the universe. The 10 week program takes them through their training that will see them graduate to become a member of the Galactic Strike Force.
The curriculum is based around the adventures of two super heroes and there are three principles that act as its foundation;
- Story Telling
All of the learning points are integrated into the games, stories and play; this allows the players to learn in their natural environment while having fun. The role of the coach is one of story teller with the coaching points integrated into the stories. Learning to play with the ball is all part of the stories and the fun. Each child has their own Galactic Strike Force ball
(the galaxy), and it becomes their mission to protect the galaxy. The ball has been designed to show the fundamental touch points for moving the ball and the players will develop their ball skills as part of the Strike Force training. This program is age specific and skill specific for players at the U8 level and is a progression from the U6 Dinomites program.
