Children want different things from their participation in sport and physical activity and require different approaches given their stage of development. The research suggests that if we get it right at this early stage, a higher proportion of them will be equipped with both movement skills and love of activity, to remain active into their adult years and lead a healthy lifestyle. The stakes are high!
Sport Ireland Coaching have developed 4 modules, specifically to provide candidates with a basic understanding of children’s sport and physical activity and best ways to optimise children’s enjoyment, participation and positive outcomes. The concepts of Physical Literacy and Holistic Development run throughout the series of workshops and will be covered in detail.
Sport Ireland Coaching sees these workshops as the first stage of development and hope we can build on these workshops to develop a comprehensive education system for all those involved in children’s sport.
