    Fundamental Movement Skills: Learning to Train Stage builds on the learning from Fundamental Movement Skills: Active Start and FUNdamentals by emphasizing more advanced elaborations and combinations of movement skills and incorporating a broader understanding of fitness-related concepts and holistic developmental outcomes. This resource does the following:
    • Emphasizes more advanced (specialized) elaborations and combinations of movement skills that can be transferred to a variety of sport, recreational, or active living activities such as dance, gymnastics, games, track and field, fitness, and outdoor or adventure activities
    • Broadens its focus beyond skill development by integrating developmentally appropriate knowledge and understanding (e.g., skill cues, tactical decision making) with emotional (e.g. self-control), motivational (e.g., perceived competence), social (e.g., life skills like respect), and spiritual (e.g., meaning, joy) outcomes
    • Transitions to sport-specific qualities, including fitness-related concepts such as speed, strength, stamina, coordination, balance, and agility
    • Fosters comprehension and application of basic training and self-regulatory principles like warm-up, progression, and anxiety management
    • Provides a description of the mature movement patterns of the fundamental motor skills, specific tips to help the teacher or coach develop these motor skills in their students or athletes, and a number of activities that utilize the skills
