Movement Preparation Workshop
Event Date: Nov. 25, 2017
3 PDS FOR NCCP COACHES
PHYSICAL LITERACY MOVEMENT PREPARATION IS MOVEMENT THAT FOCUSES ON INCORPORATING AND IMPROVING FUNDAMENTAL MOVEMENT SKILLS AND FUNDAMENTAL SPORT SKILLS INTO ACTIVITY. IT PREPARES THE BODY FOR MOVEMENT AND ENHANCES THE WAY YOU MOVE FOR SHORT-TERM AND LONG-TERM BENEFITS.
This is preparation for the present and future. Typically, a warm-up only engages muscles and prepares your body for activity. But you can do more when preparing for movement...
The Movement Preparation Session not only prepares the body for movement, it also improves the way you move, which reduces the risk of injury during physical activity. It also teaches skills that will benefit participation in unfamiliar activities.
Movement preparation that’s geared toward physical literacy – focusing on the techniques that improve and incorporate fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills – can also foster a more physically active and healthy lifestyle.
From the workshop, coaches will gain a greater understanding of how to use the movement preparation program as a warm-up and how to effectively lead the session as well as provide feedback and correction to promote the development of physical literacy, leading to increased performance and durability of athletes, while reducing the risk of injuries.
The workshop is applicable for coaches, teachers and recreational leaders delivering sport programs to participants aged seven years and older. The workshop includes two hours of classroom instruction, primarily completing tasks in small groups, and four hours of on-field activity where participants both experience the movement preparation firsthand and practice teaching core components of the program.
