The fundamentals of movement are designed to ensure that athletes embrace strength, balance and flexibility as part of their overall development.

The sessions, designed by Sports Coach UK and Cardiff Metropolitan University will take place across March in Carmarthen, Colwyn Bay and Newtorn.

About the course

This workshop is particularly aimed at coaches working with younger riders. Attendees will be able to plan and deliver fundamentals of movement sessions, also advising riders of the exercises they can perform independently in order to take ownership of their own training.

The three hour workshop will mostly consist of practical activity, with attendees working through each of the movements in order to understand their aims and identify correct practice. You will get a resource book to assist you in delivering fundamentals.

What you will learn:

  • what fundamental movement skills are and why they are important

  • the process of observing and correcting riders as they carry out exercises
  • how to design and deliver warm-ups that promote movement skill development.
 
  • how to design and deliver body weight training exercises (ie, not using weights)
