    Before athletes can become strong and powerful, they need to master the movement skills required in sport. Athletic Movement Skills: Training for Sports Performance sets a new standard for athletic assessment and development. This authoritative work presents proven protocols for evaluating, correcting, training, and translating athletic movement to athletic dominance.

    Clive Brewer shares his high level of expertise—drawn from sport science research and champion-producing applications—to explain body mechanics, performance development, and effective training, regardless of the age and stage of the athlete. Beginning with foundational elements such as observing, analyzing, and improving postural control to develop more resilient athletes, this course presents a progressive structure for creating a movement program to accelerate the development of multidirectional speed, power, and functional strength.

    Hundreds of photos and illustrations, plus 10 detailed exercise progressions, provide strong visual presentation of exercise progressions to encourage good technique in skills such as jumping, landing, accelerating, decelerating, and changing direction. An accompanying study guide helps solidify learning from each chapter.

    Once you complete the course and pass the exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.
