Fundamental Movement Skills
The building blocks for participation in active play and sports.
Learning skills like balance, throwing, running and kicking help children to develop the confidence to participate in active play, school PE lessons, team sports and ultimately enjoy a lifetime love of being active.
Children develop many of their fundamental movement skills between the ages of 3 to 6. In fact, movement specialists say these years are the most critical for learning because children at this age are so eager to move and are generally fearless of injury, failure and teasing from peers (Campbell, 2001:2).
