Believe it or not, listening skills are just like playing football or volleyball, which means they can be learned! We’re all guilty of not listening at one time or another and as teachers, listening to our students is a crucial step in creating a safe, respectful environment. This session uses a particular strategy that not only teaches us to listen to one another, it also helps us consider the point of view of someone with a differing opinion than our own. This session is not only useful for teachers to improve their listening skills, but it provides a successful strategy for improving the climate of respect in your classrooms.

Telling isn't Teaching: Masterful techniques for enhancing motor skill learning 105 ABC
Use less words, teach more skills! Simplify and enhance your teaching of motor skills in this active and interactive session. This upbeat session is designed to provide you with two essential teaching techniques that you can learn quickly and use immediately to more efficiently develop the physical competence of your students.

This session is focused on teaching techniques that help teachers become more efficient at developing the physical competence of their students. Physical educators can increase student activity time (i.e., the time they need to learn skills), reduce instruction time and reduce management time by using quality demonstrations. Quality demonstrations also support congruent feedback that is essential for skill learning (Rink, 2003). Participants will be able to perform quality demonstrations, identify phases of movements, and deliver congruent feedback by the end of this active and interactive session. The session will also touch on the emerging research examining the use of video feedback to support motor learning, self-assessment and motivation (Potdevin et al., 2018).

Putting the game back in motor skill learning & Motor skill assessment in the real world 105 ABC
Although motor skill learning is one of the most important outcomes from quality physical education, it is common for “skill practice” to be offered separately from playing a “game.” This active session shares ideas to make developmentally appropriate skill practice into a game.

Do you have full classes with limited time for assessing individual student motor skills? This active session presents whole class strategies to assess student motor skills aligned with the AZ physical education standards using generic levels of skill proficiency as a framework.

Youth Pickleball Program
Continued Growth of Pickleball in Schools through After School Programs;

The growth in pickleball has seen a tremendous involvement with schools and PE Teachers. Pickleball representatives continue to get involved in workshops and classes teaching to Physical Educators throughout the year.

When we started our program 2 years ago we were faced with one common question, where can we play?

Today, across the country more courts are available on the local level primarily through Parks and Rec and converted tennis courts on school grounds.

Today, the question is, how can we develop programs such as league play, tournaments, and family events for pickleball and the kids.

We are actively creating these things through weekend and after school programs, we are including players as young as 8 years old to play in USAPA sanctioned events.

Our National Pickleball Tournament, held each year in Indian Wells, CA included tournament level play for our youth, we had also set aside 2 days of our 11 day event dedicated to kids, one day was spend in a child parent event, another was a "Play with the Pros" event.

We are no longer the sport played by retirees at RV Parks. We are truly a life long game that focuses on physical literacy with our youth.
