Child screening

This module introduces rudimentary movement patterns and their importance in developing child players. The module also introduces a simple five-exercise screen for children to determine if they have the mobility and stability required to produce efficient and effective movements.

By the end of this module the coach should better understand rudimentary movement patterns and why training children to play rugby requires knowledge of this topic. The coach should also be able to administer and score a very simple, five-exercise screen with their players. This will give the coach good information on the movement competence of their players which will in turn provide valuable training information.
