Closing the GAP in Session Planning: when planning sessions what is your starting point? To give your players sessions that are relevant to their needs, that provide the right content for their learning and development, and which they will enjoy, ask the simple question ‘where are we now’? and make an assessment of the players’ stage of learning. Follow that with the question ‘where do we want to get to’? and set some objectives for the session. Now ‘close the gap‘! – plan what you are going to do (session content) based on your answers to the previous questions, and how you a going to do it (to achieve objectives)! Simples!
