On December 1, 2018 NB Physical Literacy partnered with Sport for Life, a national non-profit leading training, resource development and research surrounding athlete development and physical literacy in Canada and extending throughout the world, to offer an exciting new opportunity!
The new opportunity is called Movement Preparation Training! 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. Movement Preparation 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.”
This new program is geared towards fostering a more physically active and healthy lifestyle by having participants become better movers and athletes by strengthening their bodies and increasing participation! This is done by providing coaches new options to incorporate into their participants warm ups and programs. These strengthening and fundamental movement skill activities have the potential in preventing injury and increasing physical literacy skills for sport!
The training, which is rolling out in New Brunswick for 2019, will be hosted in partnership with Soccer New Brunswick and initially financially sponsored by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
The workshop will introduce those interested in working on physical literacy skills with their athletes and participants by:
- 3 hour hands-on workshop practicing and leading dynamics, accelerations, cutting, ladders and core exercises that you will later be able to build into your programs
- 2 – 45 min online e-learning modules to provide the theory behind the activities
Don’t forget your sneakers and clothes for exercising, because you get warm!
