Movement Skills Modules 1&2

Welsh Athletics is pleased to announce the launch of our online Movement Skills Modules. As fundamental movement is the foundation for developing all the athletic qualities, our online modules are aimed at supporting leaders, coaching assistants, and coaches to gain, or progress, their knowledge of how to develop movement skills in athletes and runners (of all ages and abilities), in order to support improved athletic performance.

  • The modules are self-guided, enabling participants to complete at their own pace.
  • They also use video support material to reinforce the practical application of coaching movement skills in any athletics or running environment.

To get a taste of what these modules will offer, why not join us for our Movement skills for Running, Jumping, and Throwing – Unlocking an athlete’s potential session, at the Youth Development Coaching Conference on March 27th. Paul Moseley (Coach and Tutor Development Manager, England Athletics) will be exploring why good movement is essential to the ongoing development of all individuals, and a lifelong enjoyment of the sport, highlighting content from the modules.
