About the Course
We believe that a healthy young athlete is developed across four key areas: Movement, Mindset, Nutrition and Recovery.
This four-part mini-course is designed for parents and coaches of aspiring sporting stars. It brings together the experience and research from a range of experts in youth development.
Lesson 1: Movement
This lesson focuses on something that we do everyday and largely take for granted – movement. Learning great movement patterns is something that we have to spend more time on in this day and age due to our increasingly sedentary lifestyles. Understanding how young athletes develop and providing age appropriate movement progressions is essential to developing healthy young athletes.
Lesson 2: Mindset
Without the right mindset, success will not be achieved. But with a clear goal, a growth mindset and great personal planning, then the impossible becomes possible. Through some simple techniques you will have your aspiring athletes on track to success.
Lesson 3: Nutrition
This lesson focuses on food! Young people eat a lot of it and even more when they are playing a lot of sport. But with so much conflicting information out there it can be confusing for parents and coaches alike. This lesson aims to make it simple. Simple food is always the best!
Lesson 4: Recovery
Recovery is more than just eight hours sleep a night, but that is a good start. Many of our aspiring athletes are doing too much and get burnt out. They need time, just like us adults do, to unwind, let the body adapt and get ready for the next effort.
