Fundamentals of Movement: Part 1

The first video in the Youth Physical Development Model series, which introduces the concept of physical literacy

UK Coaching was formerly known as Sports Coach UK. We changed our name after expanding our support as an organisation. We’re now taking it wider than traditional sports because great coaching goes much, much further.

This video introduces the concept of physical literacy in young people and why this is so important in youth development. The video breaks down the various components of the long term athlete development model (LTAD) and how this is applied to support youth development and introduces the Youth Physical Development Model as an extension of this.

To gain a full understanding of the model and how to include fundamental movement skills in your coaching sessions attend the UK Coaching workshop 'How to Coach the Fundamentals of Movement'.
