What is Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS)?

What does the research say
What does the research say? emphasis?

  • Coaching for games UNDERSTANDING (Thorpe & Speckman (2004)

  • Small sided games emphasis learning through the game – experiencing the need for a technique before formally teaching & coaching it. (What might this mean for coaching in the GAA?)

  • The opposite and more Traditional perspective would focus on technique development and then exploration in the game context.

What about the reform curriculum in our schools
What about the Reform Curriculum in our schools “understanding” and “technique” development

I am aware that lots of coaches are now working in schools

  • It offers a Common educational experience for all pupils

  • Where does Physical Education fit in the Reform Curriculum and how can we as coaches relate and complement this requirement.

  • Lets look at the Curriculum Model for KS 1&2

The northern ireland curriculum ks 1 2
The Northern Ireland Curriculum KS 1&2 “understanding” and “technique” development

Games teaching ks 1 2 in the n ireland curriculum

How might this all come together

  • Recognise that the learning needs of the child are paramount

  • The game should always adjust to the (Physiological, Psychological & Emotional) needs of the child and NEVER the other way round.

  • As coaches of early learners we need to be as Inclusive as possible for as long as possible

  • What might a club/GB structure look like that embodies this ethic?

Multi skills club

Food for thought

Food for thought? “understanding” and “technique” development

“I see boys when they arrive at our academy and it seems obvious to me that despite being the best young footballers many of them are lacking in what I can only describe as basic athletic skills!”

Sir Alex Ferguson, May 2003

Finally “understanding” and “technique” development

  • Thanks for the opportunity to share some of my views on what I consider to be the most important job in sport and that is nurturing our young people into sport.

  • Debate and argument is essential in this area if we are to get it right.

  • Your Work-Shop titles will I’m sure challenge you to test out some of what I have shared with you.

  • Tapadh leat (Thank-you)
