To effectively coach children and teenagers it is essential to understand their stage of growth in terms of physical and psycho-emotional development.
In this course we examine how children progress and refine their fine and gross movement skills as they progress from infancy through to their teenage years. We also consider how modern living impacts on this critical period of development. We describe practical exercises that progress what are known as reflexive and rudimentary movement skills which are critical to later movement and sport skill development.
We also provide an extensive menu of exercises, drills and games that include rolling, crawling and rotational exercises and drills that can be incorporated into the physical activity programme of both young and not so young performers.
