PLAY FOR GOAL 3
GOOD HEALTH & WELL-BEING
What’s the goal?
To ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages is important to building prosperous societies.
Why does it matter?
Despite great strides in improving people’s health and well-being in recent years, inequalities in health care access still persist. More than six million children still die before their fifth birthday each year, and only half of all women in developing regions have access to the health care they need.
Warm-up the mind
Prior to beginning the lesson, ask players how the work of one individual can create positive progress toward a collective Global Goal?
Warm-Up the body and mind
Memory dribble warm-up: Place the 17 posters (A4 laminated) of the global goals around the playing area.
Each player has a ball to dribble around (could also be played without balls or with balls in hands for beginners). Initially start by letting players have the freedom to dribble around the area and tell them to try to memorise where each of the global goals is.
Then the game begins! When the coach shouts a colour players have to race to dribble their ball to the corresponding poster and you can award points for the fastest to react and tell the goal.
Then progress to shouting individual Global Goals for the players to find and do the races again.
At the end of the warm-up players should be able to memorise some of the Global Goals and so the coach could delegate choosing the goals to the players. And have them talk about what they could do for that goal.
You could have a competition at the end to memorise the most amount of goals. Let them say as many as they can remember.
DRILLS & GAMES
Create Game situation
A simple way to bring in the Global Goals when playing a match- is that every time a team scores, they can double their points by stating a Global Goal and what they could do to help promote this in their community. Match situations could be created by playing small sided games but adapting the rules depending on the goal that you are playing for.
You could allow the players to be quite creative with this by introducing the goal at the beginning of the match and asking them how this could be included.
