Using the Movement Library


Advanced Skill 1 and 2 -module is based on using the acquired movement library and discovering the possibilities of using it. The main themes of Advanced Skill 1 and 2 -modules are combination movements of body control and jumping, balance, running, change of direction with perception, movement rhythm, body control while airborne and skill fitness. In addition, the movement skill exercises are integrated with the skills of throwing and catching a ball. Advanced Skill 1 and 2 -module is based on utilizing the skills learned from Fundamental Skill -modules and developing novel movement patterns. The single movement skills progress to movement combinations, that introduce new challenges in learning movement skills. Advanced Skill 1 and 2 -content is connected with the skill demands of various sports.

Diverse movement combinations and creative use of the movement library enables comprehensive development of all motor components, such as rhythm, coordination and adaptability. A new area of development, directing focus and perception coupled with action is also introduced in this module.

In conjunction with the main learning theme, each training session starts with a movement preparation component that is divided into development of body control and mobility. Movement preparation warm-up helps build functional strength and flexibility that ensures that fundamental skills as well as physiological abilities are developing hand in hand. A core strengthening segment takes place in the end of training session. Also, each participant is given a movement homework that is meant to be a motivation for independent learning and training until the group meets again.

Advanced Skill 1

The level 1 skill training is based on short movement combinations, that require mastering a variety of skills as well as physical fitness. Identifying the individual style of learning and improving the ability to focus are some of the goals of movement combination sessions. Novel stimulation in the learning environment emphasize skills of observation, perception and decision making while training the movements.

Balance skills are also introduced at this level through balance movement exercises that are executed both on and off various apparatus.

Advanced Skill 2

The second level will bring more demanding challenges. The movement combinations are longer by duration and they include external stimuli. The main themes are built inside the exercises and that requires a utilizing the movement library even more.

The higher level of challenge with the movement combinations elevates the physical fitness and the mental capabilities as well.
