Child To Champion 2016 Online Videos

Back in April we ran the incredibly successful Child To Champion 2016 LTAD Conference which brought together some real leaders in the field of S&C to discuss all things related to the topic of Long Term Athlete Development. Speakers across the weekend presented their work from various stages of the developmental continuum right from primary & secondary schools through to professional academies and elite international sport.

Now you can catch up on a fantastic set of lectures from the conference from Mike Young (Athletic Lab/Proformance), Simon Brundish (UK Strength Lab), Tom Rusga (EIS), Kevin Paxton (Leicester City FC), Shayne Murphy (Manchester City FC), James Baker (St. Peter’s High School/Proformance) and Neill Potts (Scottish Rugby Union).

Just under a month ago we were joined from coaches from across the UK and Europe for the Child To Champion LTAD Conference at St. Peter’s R.C. High School in Gloucester.

The weekend was a fantastic learning experience providing an opportunity to learn, share and connect with leaders from the field of strength & conditioning working at all levels of the athletic development continuum.

The video below provides a superb snapshot in to the weekend and the mixture of theoretical and practical sessions that took place.

A huge thanks must go to everyone who took the time out of their busy schedules to attend the event, the phenomenal speakers and our sponsors Exxentric, Nutrition-X and Perform Better who all played their part in making it a huge success.

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.
