Youth Physical Development Model

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.

The 'Youth Physical Development Model' was developed by Dr Rhodri Lloyd and Dr Jon Oliver of Cardiff Metropolitan University, recognised as two world leading experts in the field, and is based on evidence that shows that participants of both genders are responsive to training throughout childhood and adolescence.

Coaches can make a difference at all stages of development. The video looks at the terms the model uses explaining to you the differences between the male and female versions.
