English term or phrase: Lead-ups
Il s'agit d'une expression qui revient à quelques reprises dans un livre de sports. On peut y lire "Hockey lead-ups" et "Ringette lead-ups", notamment. Quelqu'un peut-il m'aider et me dire ce que signifie "lead-ups" dans ce contexte?

Merci à l'avance,

Richard T.

The purpose of lead-up games is to provide fun and dynamic game like actions that create situations for the practice of one or more skills at the same time as learning rules, tactics, strategies and other complexities of the game. Lead-up games serve to complement skill instruction and drill practice by applying the newly acquired skills in a controlled environment which is competitive and vigorous, but not as intense or complicated as actual game conditions. The limited space and number of participants allows for ample opportunities for quality responses. Well designed lead-up games are engaging and motivating, and thus they maximize quality \"time on task.\" In psychosocial and perceptual-motor complexity, lead-up games are a natural step between straight drills of a skill and the actual and rather complex game.

Ok, if you find it more useful, to translate it, I would say:

Ça me semble assez évident. Pas besoin d'emprunter le terme anglais quand il serait plus simple (et mieux compris) de traduire...

selon le contexte.
Par exemple: hockey lead-ups serait suivit de la liste des meneurs dans cette discipline.
