In our P.E session, we played wheel chair basketball which is a game especially made for people with leg disabilities. At the beginning of the period, the game was explained to us by two professional wheel chair basketball players Mark and Mii who play for the New Zealand wheel breakers. The game was explained in depth about the rules and strategies that we could use after we learnt the rules and strategies we then practised them in the wheel chairs our class was built up evenly which meant that everyone had a wheel chair.
My level of engagement was an merit have chosen this grade because I think that my actions in the game were at an merit level as well as my teamwork participation, The grade merit that I have graded myself is based on participation and engagement at a medium level which I think that I did because throughout the lesson from start to finish I was engaged and put in 100% effort towards the sport that i never knew ow to play. The three key factors that influenced me were challenge, sense of achievement and fun and enjoyment.
Challenge this factor is a positive factor because the sport wheel chair basketball was very unfamiliar to me because I had never heard or played the game, But when the instructors talk to us about it, it sounded fun. When they gave us a turn I found it really complicated and challenging but later on i soon got the hang of it a example Is when did a shooting drill were we had to carry the ball to the hop a perform a shot this was hard because it was quite hard pushing a shooting at the same time.
My second factor is Sense of achievement, This factor is a positive factor and is extremely important in the role of wheel chair basket ball because when I learnt how to play a game of wheel chair basketball I felt a sense of achievement because I had just learn't how to play a game which I had no knowledge of. An example of a time when i felt a the sense of achievement while playing wheel chair basketball was when i shot a goal an the ball went into the hoop the was a huge excitement for me.
My final factor which I have chosen is fun and enjoyment which is a positive factor I have chosen this factor because throughout the time of playing and learning wheel chair basketball I enjoyed every second and I think that if wheel chair basketball wasn't fun then I wouldn't have tried as harder than I did, An example of my favourite thing about wheel chair basket ball is riding the wheel chair a manoeuvring through players
