About the event
We play for fun, fitness and kindness. We laugh as we all (teammates and opponents) share in a dance of movement. A warm welcome is guaranteed.
This session is mixed and 16+ and all ability. While there is a big "ish" with ages lets use our common sense. If unsure contact jon.thorne@Lifeskills21.club
This week it's half court, but hopefully the week after full court.
Any questions contact me on jon.thorne@Lifeskills21.club

WE DON'T COACH HOW TO CORRECTLY PLAY ANY SPORT. WE COACH GAME IQ.
We are Game IQ Coaches and we help everyone develop Game IQ by playing a particular format of various sports and games. While Sports Coaches correct mistakes players make in how they move their bodies - we as Game IQ Coaches help players harmonise the two hemispheres of their brain knowing something good - we have no idea what - will happen. We don't play sport in the normal way. We are not connected to, supported by, or affiliated with any sports governing body.
We are a social enterprise using Game IQ Coaching to bring people together regardless of their ability to execute instructions or pay in an inclusive, diverse, high-performing community. Don't let a lack of money stop you from coming. We free tickets. Contact jon.thorne@LifeSkills21.club you don't need to explain - He will just give you the code.
It is a powerful unconscious bias that the only way to coach sport is for coaches to correct the failures to execute their instructions. This unconscious bias excludes and discriminates against those who are socially disabled by a fear of being rejected for not correctly executing instructions - a fear of not being good enough. Game IQ Coaching challenges this unconscious bias in a way that lifts performance and participation. It’s time for change.
We are Imaginatively open. When someone joins - no matter how good or bad they are at sport - everyone automatically imagines new ways for them to share in a dance of sport. Sharing a connection is more important than playing correctly so the rules of a sport are adapted so that everyone can share in the dance - this is for the best as well as those who physically struggle. Everyone is encouraged to find what works for them in their context and to keep doing it till it stops working and then stop while at the same time trying other ways to find what else works for them in their context. To be free-thinking. Openly imaginative. We want lots of alternative views on a given situation. We value a viewpoint that doesn’t make sense to others because they are the most imaginative. We want and seek neuro-diversity because having a variety of approaches that are constantly evolving to any one problem creates a high-performing, agile, creative, and inclusive community. We promote fresh thinking. We are open-minded. Inclusion is in our DNA.
Health and safety
The additional risk for what we do compared to Sports Coaching is that we have a much wider range of abilities and ages. Sports Coaching manages this risk by streaming players by ability and age. We manage this risk in a different way so that we can safely bring a more diverse group of people together. Click here to see our risk assessment in a google doc.
Lets play ball
We are a social enterprise. We use all profits to give those who are excluded or vulnerable to social exclusion a free experience of playing sports and games where everyone set's each other up to succeed. Where everyone constantly imagines other ways. Where everyone uses mistakes to find what is next and grow. Experiences to build a belief that they are not stuck as they are now. Thank you.

Pay it forward
This "Pay it forward" ticket gives someone a free ticket to this event. They are typically people who suffer social exclusion because they think differently. They use our events to grow a belief in themselves that they can live a life of their making free from a fear of not being good enough in the eyes of others. Thank you!
