All coaches who work with children and young people should have an understanding and knowledge of how to implement fundamental movement skills, which underpin successful participation in a wide variety of sporting activities.
This practically based workshop is designed to help you learn how to nurture physically confident children and adults – the key to a healthy and active lifestyle.
The workshop reflects the latest thinking presented in the Youth Physical Development Model (YPDM). As well as providing participants with a thorough grounding in fundamental movement skills, it equips participants with the knowledge and confidence to incorporate key elements into every session – irrespective of the age group.
It uses as its framework the latest evidence-based research that isolates which movements and competencies children should have at particular stages in their development, right through to adulthood.
