This Multi-skills activity club is for the Foundation year only and will be coached by EOIN.
Focusing on fun games is key to teaching young children but with a hint of more structure towards skill development. The club will take place INDOORS in the main hall or weather permitting, OUTDOORS on the playing fields. All our coaches are educated in understanding the how children learn, and that ‘FUN’ is a priority!
Please ensure that your child brings: plenty to drink, sports kit (Westpro Teamwear available).
When school finishes at 3.20pm, the children will be escorted from their classroom to the hall where the Westpro coaches will be waiting. At 4.25pm the children are to be collected from the School Reception. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT IN YOUR CAR FOR YOUR CHILD, THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO WALK ACROSS THE CAR PARK ON THEIR OWN. If, for whatever reason you are late in picking your child up, the coach will stay with the child for as long as they are able and then pass the care of the child to a member of staff.

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.
A full refund for the remaining weeks of the block will be returned if you choose to discontinue with the coaching.
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.
