Physical Activity Area: Field

Merit

I placed myself at merit because

  • I was actively involved
  • Bought my gear/ was prepared for the lesson

The factors influenced that can influence participation

  • Challenge
  • Social
  • Fun and enjoyment

Factor 1: Challenge

It was a challenge as we had to get it from one side of the field to the other and I was at a disadvantage as I couldn’t throw it as far as some of the guys and some of the guys were a lot taller so when I was trying to guard our part of the field it was a bit more of a challenge. This influenced my participation positively as I wanted to try harder which got me more involved.

Factor 2: Social

I enjoyed the social aspect of this game as it was very chill and not to competitive which influenced me to get more involved as it wasn’t as serious so it made it more fun and a laugh with all of the people in class.

Factor 3: Fun & enjoyment

The game was very fun so it influenced me to get more involved and put in full effort towards the game.

What to do to improve future participation?

Communicate more with the team instead of being quiet the whole game.

Achieved

I placed myself at Achieved because

  • I was actively involved
  • Bought my gear/ was prepared for the lesson

The factors influenced that can influence participation

  • Challenge
  • Social
  • Fun and enjoyment

Factor 1: Challenge

It was a challenge for me to be able to do the crossfit because of the fitness side of it which affected my participation as I got tired while doing some of it which caused me to stop for a while and want to stop. It was also a challenge to be able to get an achieved which made me keep wanting to push through though to be able to pass.

Factor 2: Social

The social aspect of it put me off as the teacher had chosen to not only get two other teachers to watch us but a whole other year 12 class, this made me not want to participate to my fullest as he made us have a partner from the other class watch us the whole time we were doing it which made me feel slightly uncomfortable.

Factor 3: Fun & enjoyment

Doing crossfit wasn’t very fun at all so it didn’t give me much motivation to do it what so ever which affected my participation as sometimes I would just stop as I would get bored from doing all of the activities.

What to do to improve future participation?

Keep going to my highest ability even if i get bored.

Not Achieved

I placed myself at Not achieved because

  • I wasn’t actively involved/ participate in much of the lesson
  • Although I did bring my gear/ was prepared for the lesson

The factors influenced that can influence participation

  • Injury
  • Social
  • Fun and enjoyment

Factor 1: Injury

Although I didn’t want to do it I was also injured as I have achilles tendonitis which causes me a lot of pain when doing activities such as the burpess star jumps and the running. This caused me not to participate as I didn’t want it to flare up.

Factor 2: Social

I didn’t like the social aspect of it what so ever as there was the whole class doing everything at the same time so if you didn’t finish when everyone else did they would know as you would be the only one not running. This influenced my participation immensely as I didn’t want to partake in any of the drills. Push up, sit ups etc

Factor 3: Fun & enjoyment

It wasn’t fun at all and there was no enjoyment doing it either, because of this I didn’t want to get involved at all as I was just bored and hating doing it so I didn’t have any motivation to do it.

What to do to improve future participation?

Partake in the activities.

Merit

I placed myself at merit because

  • I was actively involved
  • Bought my gear/ was prepared for the lesson

The factors influenced that can influence participation

  • Challenge
  • Social
  • Fun and enjoyment

Factor 1: Challenge

The challenge helped me get more involved as there were multiple sports, turbo touch, Ashtons rules, frisbee, netball, soccer and basketball. This was challenging as you didn’t know what sport you would play so it helped me stay more involved.

Factor 2: Social

The game was social which influenced my participation as it mixed you up with who you would play with nearly every time. This part I did not like very much about it and made me not want to participate as much until I was with a team with one of my friends in it.

Factor 3: Fun & enjoyment

The game was fun and enjoyable as there was a mixture of games so you wouldn’t be standing round or getting bored from one sport which is good, this made me want to participate more as I have a short attention span so doing many different sports was good as it didn’t get boring.

What to do to improve future participation?

Don’t mind whos in my team while playing just get on with it and play.

Boccer was a good challenge as it was a mixture of basketball and soccer which made it more challenging. This helped my participation as it made it more of a challenge and stopped it from being boring.

Factor 2: Social

The social aspect influenced my participation negatively as it was very social as we were just split up into two teams so I didn’t want to get as involved as I prefer it to be smaller teams.

Factor 3: Fun & enjoyment

Merit

I placed myself at merit because

  • I was actively involved
  • Bought my gear/ was prepared for the lesson

The factors influenced that can influence participation

  • Could go at own pace
  • Social
  • Fun and enjoyment

Factor 1: Could go at own pace

It was good that we could go at our pace as I’d never properly played tennis before, since we could go at our own pace we could fix the skills that we were lacking and work on it for longer while others could move on. This helped me get more involved as I wanted to get better at tennis and this allowed it to be more enjoyable as we could choose the drills we wanted to do.

Factor 2: Social

The social aspect was good as you could choose who you wanted to work with so Dhanice and I chose to go together which made it a more enjoyable as we just started to have fun while doing the drills which was good as I normally don’t really enjoy Tennis. So doing this made me want to get more into it as we started challenging each other at things.

Factor 3: Fun & enjoyment

The game was slightly boring which affected my participation slightly as I started to off task sometimes and had to keep reminding myself to stay on task. But then we changed some of the drills to make it less boring like we started to play mini tennis which made me start to get more involved again as it was more fun.

What to do to improve future participation?

Have concentrated a little bit more with each drill to have made my improvement faster

Merit -Did the best to my ability

Factors the influenced that can influence participation

Challenge

Social

Fun and enjoyment

Factor 1: Challenge

Badminton was challenging for me as I’m not very coordinated with a racket, it became challenging for me to stay actively involved as I wasn’t enjoying either. When I fins that I’m not very good at a sport I genuinely just give up so it was challenging to keep playing while I sucked at it.

Factor 2: Social

The game was quite social which was good as we just went in a group of six, two verse two then switch in and out, which made it a little more enjoyable as we went with people we were friends with so it wasn’t as boring. But because of the social aspect of it and being able to switch in and out I used it to my advantage to not have to contribute as much.

Factor 3: Fun & enjoyment

I didn’t enjoy it at all so it affected my participation negatively it I didn’t find any enjoyment at all as it was very boring, because of this I didn’t get as involved as I could have.

What to do to improve future participation?

Participate and try a little bit more even if I don’t enjoy it.
