What is ‘Multi Skills’?
The use of the term ‘Multi Skills’ in this context implies two meanings;
- A lack of sports specialism
- A variety of experiences
Multi Skills activities should use a variety of approaches which impact upon the movement and sport skills of a young person in a fun, but challenging environment. A number of approaches can be adopted, the three most common being;
- Pure FUNdamentals – where skills are developed on their own
- FUNdamentals in Activity – where FUNdamental skills are developed and then applied in a range of
Multi skills type activities • FUNdamentals in Sport – where FUNdamentals skills are developed and then applied to a specific sport.
This matrix should then allow a deliverer to develop a range of skills including:
Agility, Balance, Co-ordination, Running, Jumping, Bouncing, Throwing, Catching, Striking, Skipping, Twisting, Turning, Hopping, Kicking, Trapping, Rhythm, Power, Lunging …
By enhancing a young person’s overall movement vocabulary, the aim of Multi Skills is to improve their physical literacy at a time before they choose to specialise in specific sports.
Multi Skills coaches have the skills and knowledge required to deliver safe activities and are able to identify and if necessary make beneficial adjustments, to participants movements and actions. They also understand the key principles of LTAD and child development. Of paramount importance is the need to create the right atmosphere for learning and development by offering high quality enjoyable sessions centred on the ability needs in an inclusive environment, which allows all young people to engage.
All coaches used by WestCountry ProCoaching are qualified FA coaches and hold the Enhanced DBS Disclosure Certificate which requires Police checks by the Criminal Records Bureau.
