Fundamental Movement Skills are the building blocks for successful participation in games and sports. On this page you will find helpful links and resource booklets for the development of FMS.
There are some great video's available from the below website
The videos on this site, breakdown the movements needed to be able to do a skill correctly. And clearly show a child who is able to do a skill and a child who is skill in the learning phase. The skills covered by the videos include: Catch, Dodge, Hop, Kick, Leap, Side Gallop, Skip, Sprint, Static Balance, Throw, 2 Handed Strike and Jump.
