Before you start any plan you should create a plan that highlights
Your goal, objective, what you want to achieve. I.e. first sailing sessions goal = getting people interested in sailing!
Content, what you are going to do....
Target setting - advanced skill
Target should be set for participants, particularly if the activity is part of a serries of sessions aimed at improving skils and techniques.
As leaders you should also set target as part if the evaluation process. WWW EBI.

Responsibilities of a leader
Starter: Collaborative learning task
Watch the videos on the iPads
Which responsibility is the sports leader NOT displaying?
What evidence have you got to state that this responsibility is being displayed?
Leaders must behave professionally and responsibly art all times. Young children often look up to their new leader and think of them as role models. Therefore their actions and behavior must be impeccable in order to have a positive impact on the members of the group
Health and safety
The leader must ensure that the group is group is safe and well while participating in physical activity. This involves duties such as checking the there is a current risk assessment and checking that the equipment is in good working order.
Sports leaders should be aware of equal opportunities and try to ensure that all participants are treated equal with respect to age gender, disability, nationality, ethnicity or national origin. They should encourage members of their group to be polite and respectful to create a good atmosphere.
These are in addition to the core responsibilities of a sports leader.
It is a requirement for a sports leader to have insurance to cover them for any activity that they undertake. This provides reassurance to the participants and their families in case of accidents, and protects the leader should anything go wrong!
Sports leaders must make sure that children in their care are safe and not at risk from anyone. it is vital that leaders identify children with problems or those that are suffering abuse. Children often confide in people that they look upto, and if a child is suffering at home they may share the burden with a sports leader/ coach.
If you are leading children under the age of 16, you are legally obliged to seek the permission of a parent/ guardian before allowing anyone to take part. Also if your activity is considered to be a contact sport such as football or rugby participants must not take part in mixed gender activities an separate gender practices should be set up.
Ethics and values
good sportsmanship is about being fair and honest. Sports leaders should encourage the members of their group to respect each other and their opponents, and to oblige by the the rules and etiquette in their sport or physical activity.
Rules and regulations
leaders should be familiar with the rules and regulations of the sport that they are delivering. They should also ensure that their group members adhere to the rules because this may help prevent injuries.
