This is a very practical, interactive course delivering real skills to all abilities. SAQ® Training is a system of progressive exercise and instruction aimed at developing fundamental motor abilities, balance, co-ordination and ultimately complete control of body movement.
All teachers, coaches, trainers and parents want youngsters and children to move with competence and confidence and to develop the desire to participate in sport and physical activity.
All children whatever their ability, age, size, shape or aspiration can improve their fundamental movement ability and build the foundations on which future sporting performance is based. Children will enjoy the variety, challenge and performance improvements that SAQ® Training can provide.
Interestingly there is now much evidence to show the impact of SAQ® Fundamental Movement Training on children’s overall learning, handwriting development and mathematics skills, improvements in concentration and behaviour, as well as physical development.
Delegates will take away:
Who should attend?
Teachers, teaching assistants, coaches and parents - literally anyone with a keen interest in improving movement and learning ability in children.
NB REPS registered delegates should have a Level 2 Physical Activity for Children Award as a prerequsite.
