Functional Movement Skills

Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) are the building blocks for movement and they form the foundation for many of the specific motor skills required in popular sports and leisure activities. Furthermore, developing FMS during childhood is an important step towards establishing a life-long commitment to physical activity (SPANS 2010).

Fundamental movement skills are a key component of helping participants to be physically literate at any age. When leaders help participants competently develop fundamental movement skills, the participants will gain increased confidence and motivation, and take more responsibility to be physically active for life.

Mental Heath and Exercise

Being active is great for your physical health and fitness, and evidence shows it can also improve your mental wellbeing. We think that the mind and body are separate. But what you do with your body can have a powerful effect on your mental wellbeing. Mental wellbeing means feeling good – both about yourself and about the world around you. It means being able to get on with life in the way you want.

Evidence shows there’s a link between being physically active and good mental well being. Physical activity is thought to cause chemical changes in the brain, which can help to positively change our mood.
