Exciting changes made to the NCCP Fundamental Movement Skills program
Eighteen months ago, the NCCP Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) program was born. A great program that fits into the FUNdamentals stage of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD), it has since been delivered to hundreds of coaches, teachers, high school students, camp counsellors, day care workers and community centre employees across Canada. The workshop focuses on a training process to teach leaders of youth how to observe fundamental movement skills in young children and how to help them advance to mature stages of the fundamental movement skills. Children who are primary school age need to learn fundamental movement skills such as running, catching, kicking to name a few, before they can begin to learn the fundamental sport skills. Having these skills will give them the confidence to participate in sport and to continue to be active for life which can also help to decrease obesity levels and increase the health of our children.
Over the last year, research on the program was conducted and revisions were made to this already great resource. The NEW NCCP FMS Workshop still teaches the same training process but adds in how to practice and adapt the fundamentals through age and stage appropriate games. A new DVD has been created to supplement the workshop and provides the visuals needed to help leaders really understand this stage of LTAD.
Last month, a Master Learning Facilitator (MLF) from each province attended an FMS update to see how to best deliver FMS in their province and to see the new revisions. This dedicated team of MLFs encourages all sports to consider adding the NCCP FMS program to their coach pathway or to consider using the FMS program as professional development in the maintenance of their coach education program. For more information about this program, please contact your Provincial/Territorial Coaching Representative using this link http://coach.ca/-p140497.
“The Locker” – October update
Work on the cleaning and loading of NCCP coach data is on schedule and is anticipated to be completed by early November. Once we are confident that nothing is being lost in the move we, at the CAC, will begin entering CRFs in The Locker instead of the current NCCP database. This will be the actual launch of The Locker.
