Introduction to Coaching Children

This workshop is an updated version of Introduction to Multi Skills. It has been developed as part of sportscotland’s physical literacy coach CPD pathway and has been designed to support new coaches, volunteers, students, young leaders parents and teachers who are working with children aged between 5-12. The workshop can stand alone or could be a precursor to sportscotland’s full 2 day Multi Skills Award, which is assessed and accredited through the Scottish Qualifications Authority.

Learners will gain an understanding of:

  • The key principles that influence all-round development of the basic movement skills and physical literacy.
  • A holistic approach to child development and the development of the whole child through sport.
  • How to develop basic multi-skills.

Workshop Outcomes:

  • Take a person-centred approach to positively impact the health and wellbeing of children through sport and physical activity.
  • Support children to develop positive behaviours through play, physical activity and sport so they can thrive.
  • Offer children the best start through positive, purposeful experiences so they become competent and confident movers.
  • Encourage lifelong participation/sport for life.
