movement concepts and strategies

A framework for enhancing movement performance.

  • Movement concepts (or elements of movement) explored in the curriculum include body awareness, spatial awareness, effort awareness, and relationship to/with objects, people and space. Movement strategies refer to a variety of approaches that will help a player or team to successfully achieve a movement outcome or goal.
  • Movement strategies include moving into space to receive a pass from a team-mate or hitting the ball away from opponents in order to make it difficult to retrieve or return the ball. Different games and sports may require similar activities or goals and will therefore use similar movement strategies in order to achieve success.
