About the event
We provide a different way to improve. Instead of correcting mistakes to neurolock what works - players play games - and Games Coaches - give players in the game - different ideas to play with. Players diversify their thinking to flow through the space between obstacles - and do more than they knew they could do.
Players become free-thinking and openly imaginative as they self-organise to solve the puzzle of a given moment of a game. They diversify their thinking to find new ways to push the boundaries of their potential - To be better than they yet know; and We laugh. A lot.
We often need a reason to diversify our thinking. We need someone or something challenging our current way of thinking. Rather than wait for life to do this - we play games.

When teenagers only learn how to play basketball - the task specific expertise, tactical responsibilities, and general logic of the game - they develop ‘knowledge-of’ basketball - sometimes called Basketball intelligence . But, they can lack the ability to utilise ‘knowledge-in’ the game - often called Game Intelligence. Where they self-organise and work out for themselves how to adapt to solve the puzzle of what is happening in each given moment as a game unfolds.
When we are over-reliant on our "knowledge-of" a sport (the task specific expertise, tactical responsibilities, and rules) we overthink. We fear mistakes. We are too mechanical, too predictable, and too serious.
Our Games Coaching helps players grow their ‘knowledge-in’ game. To be more free-thinking. More openly imaginative. When an action doesn't work - diversify their thinking - to find another way. To self-organise and work out how to adapt to solve the puzzle of what is happening in each given moment as a game unfolds. To use their brain in the most effective way to figure out new ways to push the boundaries of their potential. A warm welcome is guaranteed.
Please note : We don’t enter teams into any competitions run by any sports governing bodies. Sports clubs are welcome to attend sessions to recruit creative agile-thinking players to play in their teams. Clubs are also welcome to send players to our sessions to figure out new ways to push the boundaries of their potential. Please note that NeuroDiverseGamesCoaching.ORG is not currently associated with, connected to, or affiliated with any sports governing bodies. NeuroDiverse Games Coaching helps everyone to play games in the space between all the sports clubs.

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.
