Simon Brundish: Move like a Superhero

Without a doubt this is one of the presentations I am looking forward to most because, crucially, Simon is a guy who is out there coaching and  making a massive difference to primary school age children through his physical literacy programme that is running in over 20 schools.

His practical, real-world experience working with such an important age group will provide a brilliant insight to the challenges of working with kids in schools.

He will be presenting his progressive programme of movement skills, fundamental to the development of body control and movement efficiency, the times tables of movement. Giving children the tools to use in sports specific actions such as running, jumping, catching, kicking and throwing.

The programme has been developed from elite sports to provide a structured long term athletic development pathway for 5 year olds through to their pubescent years of physical development. Incorporating the works of one of our keynote speakers, Rhodri Lloyd and Kelvin Giles his system has been developed for use in both Primary schools and youth sports teams. We have 24 levels of 5 exercises, based around the push, pull, lunge, brace, rotate, squat, hinge patterns of Kelvin Giles system.

Simon uses the Superhero’s system to engage the children. each movement has 5 points of good technique each earning a star. The points are aggregated from each level giving the individual children a point average for each exercise, Hulk, Ironman, Spiderman, SilverSurfer and Thing. Their scores are plotted and monitored on a radar chart, looking for outliers to promote ‘gifted and talented’ or help under achievers.
