Topic: Fundamental Movement Skills and LTAD

Confidence and competence in one’s abilities comes from a curiosity to explore and repeat until we become proficient at what we do.  The successful acquisition of skills from the time we are born to the time we perform can greatly affect our ultimate experiences.  As more is understood about LTAD, it is clear that developing  good fundamental movement skills at an early age is essential to attaining higher levels of sport performance.

This presentation will show the relationship between physical literacy and performance while providing simple tools to evaluate fundamental movement skills.  David Arsenault will share his experience when it comes to developing skills, post-injury reconditioning, and discuss higher levels of athletic performance.
