UK Coaching: An Introduction to the FUNdamentals of Movement

Overview

Help your children to develop their ABCs (Agility, Balance and Coordination). 

This course is designed for coaches working with younger children (particularly 6–9 years of age/Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2) in either a club or PE and school sport environment. Attend this workshop and learn about the key skills that underpin the majority of sports. You'll come away with a thorough grounding in the FUNdamentals of Movement – agility, balance and coordination – as well as the importance of play, fun and enjoyment in sport. 

Coaches in schools will also be able to understand how the FUNdamentals of Movement play a crucial role in the delivery of the PE national curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2). This helps to ensure they meet Ofsted criteria when supporting teachers in PE curriculum time delivery.

You will cover:

  • How to fine-tune your observational and analytical skills to coach good movement patterns, whether for a specific sport or in multi-skill sessions
  • How to help your youngsters to master the fundamental techniques of movement – from stability to rhythm, and from acceleration to jumping and kicking
  • How the FUNdamentals can be adapted to suit different needs (e.g disabled children) and different environments (eg schools and clubs), and promote lifelong participation in sport

Fundamentals of movement

This course is held at the Academy of Sport facilities at London South Bank University and taught by exceptional tutors with years of industry experience.
