Project Details


The Athletic Skills Model (ASM) is a useful framework to create developmental movement programs in school and youth sport settings. Informed by the theoretical lens of ecological dynamics and constraints-led approach, the ASM framework enables us to both account and plan for the non-linear developmental trajectories of movement expertise. The ASM is an inclusive programme for all that balances performance, fitness, and health-giving children the best chance of leading physical active life. The ASM adopts three “roads” approach to develop movement expertise: the concentric approach, the design of challenging environments, and exploiting transfer. In combination or individually, these three ‘roads’ can increase the level of physical literacy by creating several functional movements and skills variations, which will consequently develop adaptable and healthy people. This 18h non-credit bearing course will introduce the model to practitioners and teach how to design movement programs based on this model.
