AS Practical. This is an outline of how your 15 minute talk is going to go.
Preparation time. You have an unlimited amount of time to plan your EPIP. You are given a blank piece of paper and you should use this as your template.
Divide the template up into sections. Strengths, Weaknesses, and sub divide into categories Technique, Tactics and Fitness (Speed, Strength, Stamina, Suppleness/Flexibility). Watch your performer. The analysis HAS to relate to the performer, so you cannot simply learn your talk by rote.
Write down all the techniques relevant in your sport. You can then tick or cross them as your performer works. Consider all the tactics that can be used in your sport. Tick and cross accordingly.
Long talk on Strengths and Weaknesses.
Highlight a major weakness to take through to your Action Plan. Make sure it is a technique, but you could add a tactical or fitness element as well.
Timescale. Essential. Weeks, Days. Duration of each session.
Baseline test.
The Perfect Model. Go through the correct technique in detail.
Progressive practices from Kinaesthetic feel, through to match situation. Consider 'conditioned games'.
Re test at the end of the Action Plan.
Go through Health Benefits of this sport. Social, Physical, Mental.
Opportunities to participate locally and nationally. Girls, Boys, Adults, Veterans, Disabled, Minority Groups.
Mention the NGB and initiatives. Research through the NGB website.
I then say 'Well done'

Background work. Research at least 6 techniques relevant to your sport and learn the perfect model.
Make sure you know at least 6 progressive drills and practices to support your talk.
Write an A4 sheet on Health Benefits and Opportunities to participate.

Good luck.
