How can AStarCoaching help?
The Primary school years for a child is a key environment in which to develop the fundamental principles associated with running, jumping and throwing, but with the tremendous pressure on teachers to deliver a full and varied curriculum, there is precious little time to devote to these fundamental principles.
As we know, good teaching at the very early stages is crucial, along with appropriate year on year progression. It is widely recognised that the fundamental skills learnt via running, throwing and jumping are the basic underpinning components of the majority of sports and learning the basics at a young age will help pupils acquire the habits associated with long-term skill development in all sports.
AStarCoaching’s approach focuses on teaching fundamental/multi skill principles in a stimulating, exciting and fun way to all pupils irrespective of ability.
Benefits and outcomes :-
The activities can be delivered throughout the year in curriculum time and/or after school, by qualified, enthusiastic, CRB checked, specialist club athletics/multi event specialist coaches, in a fun environment that will help pupils build their confidence, acquire underpinning movement and event specific skills required to help with a healthy lifestyle.
This all round approach is based on the experiences over many years of delivering athletics/multi events in the club environment and the programmes developed by the sports NGB, UKA e.g. via Elevating Athletics.
The need to stretch the more gifted pupils is also recognised and because the activities are delivered by club based coaches, all pupils can be signposted into club and holiday camp athletics.
