Youth Athletic Development

Location: Online

Programme overview

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.

At the end of this course the learner will:
• Display a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the early stages of motor and movement development
• Integrate the concepts of growth,
development and movement into the different stages of development of the child and teenager
• Recognise the impact of modern lifestyle on physical posture and movement skill development
• Integrate the principles and concepts
studied into a coaching context
