Developing fundamental movement skills

18 May 2014

These Developing Fundamental Movement Skills resources use play and simple activities to get kids involved in games.

Activities require only basic knowledge to teach or coach, and with these concepts you can get young people moving easily into sport and physical activity.

These longstanding resources were produced by SPARC (now Sport New Zealand) and will be updated shortly. In the meantime, find out about our latest thinking on working with young people.
