Coaching Methodology

Core to Brookfield’s Coaching is FUNdamental Movements Skills (FMS). These movement skills are important since they are the building blocks for more complex and specialized skills required by children throughout their lives to competently and confidently play different games, sports and recreational activities.

There are three key FMS Categories:

  • Locomotor Skills – running, jumping, skipping, hopping
  • Balance Skills – movements where the body remains in place
  • Ball Skills – catching, throwing, striking, kicking

The teaching of FMS is an essential part of Brookfield’s coaching methodology, from the youngest minis to teenagers. It is all about mixing fun and learning and enabling the children to develop core skills that will benefit them for tennis and all sports. It’s also about building a passion for tennis that will stay with the children throughout their lives.
