In this chapter, we explore how the motor skill, perceptual-cognitive and social capabilities required to participate in sports can be developed in young people. Because sports (individual and team) require multiple capabilities, the level of complexity offered in physical education (PE) lessons enables great opportunities for learning across multiple physical and social domains. This chapter aims to assist you to gain an understanding of the capabilities required in different sports contexts, and ways in which capabilities can be planned, taught and assessed in sport within PE.
