Main themes
In order to achieve the stated objectives, the course activities will be varied and diverse to permit experimentation and evaluation of fundamental motor skills of ball sports : - Handling and controlling a variety of balls with differents parts of the body in individuals situations, with a partner and/or against an opponent (protecting the ball / maintaining possession) - Catching, throwing, passing, pushing, dribbling the ball with a partner and/or against an opponent. - Correctly perceiving the trajectory of a ball and adjusting one's position to intercede with the flight of the ball (i.e. catching the ball while running). - Exercises in perception and adaptation.

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 By the end of this course, the student will have performed motor and psycho-motor skills related to team sports (ball sports) : catching, throwing, passing, hitting, pushing, dribbling various types of balls while either stationary or moving and perception and adaptation of ball movements. The student will perfect these actions in simple situations and will be able to apply them to a variety of collective disciplines.
Psycho-socio-motor foundations of games and team sports
To develop spatio-temporal adjustment capacities (balloon handling, trajectory analysis...) in order to be able to integrate into a collective situation.
Ability to perceive hastily trajectories (space and time) of balloons (3 dimensions) and motor adaptation capacity adapted to these trajectories (rolling machines, machines launched vertically, laterally, in depth, coming from behind)
Ability to balance after moves to adapt to a mobile device, partner and/or opponent
Ability to touch, hit, send or deflect a moving device (hit in multiple ways with both foot and hand).
Ability to move off-center in relation to the machine or partners.
Ability to perceive possibilities for action and to make quick decisions for action based on perceived elements
Ability to link tasks (status changes, role changes, play with and without ball)
Pre-techniques more specific to the sports concerned
