We want young New Zealanders to develop a love of sport and recreation that leads to lifelong participation.

To achieve this, young people must develop fundamental movement skills so that they have the right building blocks to play sport for life.

The ‘Developing Fundamental Movement Skills’ resource uses play and simple activities to get kids involved in games. With these concepts young people can move easily into modified sports and adult sports.

Activities are simple and require only basic knowledge to teach or coach.
