The physical activities that are taught within schools have received much critical debate over the past fifty years from those involved within the study of physical education (Griggs 2008). The dominance of traditional activities (most notably traditional team games) as the primary focus for the delivery of PE is widely agreed to be of concern (Green 2008). Green further states that ‘PE is nothing more nor less than the recurring practices of physical education teachers’ (2005 p 653) and in fact, the majority of physical education curriculums are nothing more than the PE teacher’s favourite or preferred sports.
