Combined Aboriginal Coaching Modules and Aboriginal Long-Term Participant Development Pathway

This joint workshop combines the Aboriginal Coaching Modules and Aboriginal Long-Term Participant Development Pathway in a unique way to provide participants with training on both professional development training tools. The workshop is designed to help Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal sport and physical activity coaches and leaders across Canada enhance their understanding about how to support Aboriginal participants and athletes in their coaching and programming.

Each month, Sport for Life Leaders School will convene for an online seminar conducted by leading Canadian sport and community development experts. Participants will take the opportunity to discuss, share, and explore ideas and progress on their projects.

NCCP Fundamental Movement Skills

In developing and teaching a child, we break down simple skills into key components to help the child learn and understand. Given the opportunity to learn a wide range of physical skills, children acquire the basic building blocks for the competence, confidence and motivation to try many physical activities and sports.


Fundamental movement skills are very important to a child’s physical development. When confident and competent in these skills, children can develop sport-specific and complex movement skills.


These skills allow children to enjoy sports and physical activities. Most importantly, with a firm grasp of the fundamental movement skills, a child may enjoy a long life of physical activity.


Learn to improve the fundamental movement skills in participants through the NCCP Fundamental Movement Skills Workshop, presented by TeamSnap!
