Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Based on his 19 years teaching physical education and coaching youth sports, Bailey assembles 158 games tested and approved by children that help build the skills they will use in more formal sports. Arranging them by increasing age group with sports such as football and basketball, he identifies skills, equipment, setup, how to play, and scoring. The play is also illustrated with line drawings. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Curt Hinson
This is a great book if you're looking for sport lead-up games. Guy Bailey has put together an excellent collection of lead-up games that is one of the most comprehensive in print.

After the initial chapter which explains the role of sport lead-up games, you'll find chapters on games for football, soccer, lacrosse, basketball, hockey, volleyball, badminton, tennis, track, softball, golf, and bowling. Each game description includes the objective, equipment, setup, and procedure to play. There's also an illustration for each game to help you visualize its setup. What's nice is that the games are ready to play, with little or no adaptation.

This is a fantastic book to add to your book shelf. Overall, we rate this book "very good." You will definitely find games in this book that you can use in your programs.
—Editor of PE Resources

Midwest Book Review
The Ultimate Sport Lead-Up Game Book is a select collection of skill-building games ideal for elementary school PE classes. It's also presented in a quick-access format, making it an ideal curriculum resource.

Featuring both team and lifetime lead-up games, the book focuses on specific skill development, total student participation, and fun (for both student and teacher). The clear, direct, and brief instructions are coupled with illustrations to make it "user friendly." Tips on game selection and safety considerations are also included.

Highly recommended.

    An excellent book which provides ready to use activities.

    Guy Bailey provides the physical education teacher as well as the classroom teacher with a complete and comprehensive guide that presents sport lead-up games for over 150 activities.They are user friendly and the book is very organized and easy to use. My students have really enjoyed these lead-up games. I highly recommend this book. It can also be a great tool for substitute teachers.
