Modified sports are adaptations of the sport to make them more appropriate for children. This could include such adaptations as:

  • Changing the rules;
  • Altering the size and type of equipment;
  • Shortening the length of the games;
  • Use of protective equipment; and
  • Changing the team size

Modified sports are a great option for the classroom. They are safer and also a really good way to introduce sports to your students.

The attached PDF (below) provides ideas of how to teach the skills required for six different modified sports. These include:

  • Netta netball;
  • Freeball;
  • Mini soccer;
  • Tee ball;
  • Mini basketball; and
  • Mini tennis.

Modified Sports

I have also included links to web resources that help explain more about each of the modified sports. The attached document also includes a rubric you could use to assess one skill from each of the modified sports.

I’d love to hear from you in the comments; what modified sports have you taught in your classroom? How do you teach the skills required for these sports?
