Womba-ball is a striking and fielding game in which the skills of batting, catching, throwing as well as offensive and defensive strategies can be learned. My objectives very depending on the students age. I focus on the catching and throwing skills in the younger grades (grades 3, 4, 5) with batting and offensive/defensive strategies in the middle and upper grades.

This is a practical workshop for physical educators who want to be able to support the delivery of inclusive sports sessions.This presentation will focus mainly on the MOVE aspect as it is a small sided game in which all participants will be actively engaged at all times.
