Introducing the concept of physical literacy

This video is part one of the Youth Physical Development Model, a UK Coaching and Sport Scotland animation bringing to life the evidence based 'Youth Physical Development Model', and what it means for the development of 'Fundamental Movement Skills'

UK Coaching was formerly known as Sports Coach UK. We changed our name after expanding our support as an organisation. We’re now taking it wider than traditional sports because great coaching goes much, much further.

This video introduces the concept of physical literacy in young people and why this is so important in youth development. The video breaks down the various components of the long term athlete development model (LTAD) and how this is applied to support youth development and introduces the Youth Physical Development Model as an extension of this.
