The ABCs that Make a Difference

Play your part in developing physical literacy in children

Exciting news! You may have already heard that sports coach UK has an excellent learning opportunity for your coaches – 3 fantastic new workshops:

  • The FUNdamentals of Agility
  • The FUNdamentals of Balance
  • The FUNdamentals of Coordination

The programme has been developed for coaches who wish to hone their observational and analytical skills, knowledge of good movement patterns and awareness of FUNdamentals and Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD). Each workshop covers one of the key concepts that contribute to physical literacy, alongside the overriding principle of making sport FUN for children and young people:

  • Agility – dynamic stability, starting and stopping, momentum, acceleration and rhythm
  • Balance – establishing a stable core, static ability, exploring centre of gravity and base of support
  • Coordination – in relation to disassociating body parts and the coordination of explosive actions, including jumping, throwing, striking and kicking.

Spread the word

These really are a fantastic continued professional development opportunity for your coaches. So why not help get the message out there by spreading the word! Tell your coaches to keep an eye out on the sports coach uk website as workshops will be coming soon.
