UNIT TITLE: Touch Football Curriculum Area: Physical and health


Year Level: 9 Course Length: Semester Topic Length: 4 Weeks

Year: 2019

Monday touch lesson instead of netball game:

-Students hand up energy task sheet homework and go through answers (5 min)
- students are expected to be prepared by individually researching/watching YouTube videos on how to umpire touch football (10 min).

-Warm up game (5 min).

-Mini round robin competition (20 min).
Cohort/Context Description
This year 9 class has a mixed ability of skills with all of the girls playing netball, as it is a Netball Program class. The class cohort is made up of students
from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. All students bring a variety of knowledge, experiences and skills in their virtual school bag.

There are no students in this class with a recognised disability/learning difficulty.


As a result of participating in this unit plan students are working towards the ACARA standards:

Students demonstrate leadership, fair play and cooperation across a range of movement and health contexts. They apply decision-making and
problem-solving skills when taking action to enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. They apply and transfer movement
concepts and strategies to new and challenging movement situations. They apply criteria to make judgements about and refine their own and
others’ specialised movement skills and movement performances. They work collaboratively to design and apply solutions to movement
challenges (The Australian Curriculum, 2018).

The focus areas to be addressed in Year 9 include, but are not limited to:

• alcohol and other drugs (AD)

• food and nutrition (FN)
• health benefits of physical activity (HBPA)
• mental health and wellbeing (MH)
• relationships and sexuality (RS)
• safety (S)
• challenge and adventure activities (CA)
• games and sports (GS)
• lifelong physical activities (LLPA)
• rhythmic and expressive movement activities (RE)

Achievement Standards Statement

By the end of Year 10, students critically analyse contextual factors that influence their identities, relationships, decisions and behaviours.
They analyse the impact attitudes and beliefs about diversity have on community connection and wellbeing. Theyevaluate the outcomes of
emotional responses to different situations. Students access, synthesise and apply health information from credible sources to propose and
justify responses to health situations. Students propose and evaluate interventions to improve fitness and physical activity levels in their
communities. They examine the role physical activity has played historically in defining cultures and cultural identities.

Students demonstrate leadership, fair play and cooperation across a range of movement and health contexts. They apply decision-making and

Intended Learning Goals

Transfer Goal: (Big Picture learning- Optional

To develop skills, knowledge and an enjoyment of the game of Touch Football.

Topic Goal: (Specific outcome from this topic)

Practice, develop and apply skills and techniques involved Touch Football..

Develop an understanding of the rules of the game of Touch Football and apply these skills into game situation.

Understand Knowledge Skills

Students will understand: Students will know: Students will be able to do:

Evaluate and justify reasons for decisions

Develop, implement and evaluate movement and choices of action when solving Transfer understanding from previous
concepts and strategies for successful outcomes movement challenges (ACPMP087) movement experiences to create solutions
(ACPMP101) to movement challenges (ACPMP106)

Analyse the impact of effort, space, time, objects

and people when composing and performing
movement sequences (ACPMP103)

Assessment Tasks:

1. Practical Assessment

Students will self assess their skills using a self-assessment rubric. The rubric has a focus on skills, knowledge and application of the game
of Touch Football.
Students will also be assessed (by a teacher)- specifically students will be expected to coach a skill/small sided game based on their given a
key idea: planning for performance
Their teaching/game must go for approximately 5 minutes long.

Theory assessment:
Students will be expected to use their practical experience and knowledge gained to help you answer the following questions on the
provided sheet.

A – Knowing and understanding

1. State how the game of Touch football begins. On a diagram of the field indicate the positioning of the players on each team for the
start of the game.

2. Outline how players score a ‘try’ in a game. Include any associated rules.

3. Identify and explain an example in a game that results in a change of possession (eg turn over).
4. Explain two physical characteristics that a Touch Footballer may need in order to be a successful player.

5. Analyse the game of touch football and then select the two most relevant energy systems for a touch football player. Justify why
your chosen energy systems are the most important.

6. Investigate why Touch football is an ideal sport to play with "mixed genders".

7. Evaluate why it is effective for teams to utilise space when in possession of the ball.

8. Justify why Touch Football can be such a positive influence on our communities.

Other Evidence: Observations, verbal exit cards

 General Capabilities Literacy (L), Numeracy (N), Information and communication technology capability (ICT), Critical and creative thinking
(CT), Personal and social capability (P), Ethical behaviour (EB) and Intercultural understanding. (IU)

In this unit students will retrieve directly stated information, interpret texts by making inferences, reflect on texts using background or prior
knowledge and interpret explicit information.


Students will be required to conduct basic calculations and use units of measurement when setting up the field.
Intercultural Understanding

In this unit students will participate in activities that are recognised both nationally and internationally. Students develop intercultural
understanding whilst valuing their own cultures, common languages and beliefs of others. Students will understand how culture shapes
personal and social perspectives and interactions combined with what is valued in terms of physical activity with their families, social group
and the broader community.

Ethical Behaviour

Students learn how to behave ethically. Students focus on the importance of treating others with integrity, fairness, compassion, and respect
diversity and equality for all.

There are no students within this class that have a recognised learning need or disability. Thus being said, the unit will still differentiate as
required by understanding students learn best (eg verbal explanation and then visual demonstration of tasks that are expected to be completed).
Practical sessions will also be differentiated as required through the use of constraints and a game sense guided questioning approach.
