An Introduction to the FUNdamentals of Movement

Help Your Children To Develop Their ABCs (Agility, Balance and Coordination)

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.

Who Is This For?

Coaches who are 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.

Duration: 3 hours (includes a practical element so you will have the chance to put into practice what you learn in the first part of the workshop)

Group size: 6-25

You Will Learn To:

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