Components of the Academy

Science: Analysis of Movement Skill

Learning Objectives

  • To identify and describe how complex systems operate within the context of sport
  • To understand the nature and role of information in the coordination and control of movement behavior
  • To determine where each Sport Movement Specialist authentically stands in their personalized, conceptualized view of movement skill

Science: Understanding of Movement Behavior

Learning Objectives

  • To use the athlete-environment system as the main scale of analysis in assessing movement skill in sport (and in the world too)
  • To be able to study the problem-solving processes of the mover in context
  • To determine how we may be able to be able to use the concept of affordance perception and selection to assess the current movement skill of a performer and in the subsequent design of practice activities in the learning environment

Art: Creating a Learning Environment

Learning Objectives

  • To conceptualize the Sport Movement Specialist as an environment designer, a problem setter, or a facilitator of movement skill
  • To understand how constraint manipulation can help us set adequately challenging movement problems to be solved by containing the most relevant information and affordances for the athlete to interact with
  • To apply the concept of ‘repetition without repetition’ to help increase the skilled movement behavior of our athletes

Art: Guiding the Performer to Enhanced Movement Skill

Learning Objectives

  • To determine the various individual differences between performers which will change how they solve movement problems as well as how the Sport Movement Specialist could aim to guide them most effectively
  • To understand how factors such as instruction and feedback can influence the learning process
  • To provide a learning environment which prioritizes innovation, creativity, authenticity, and freedom in the movement skill of athletes

Presentations

(Every week)

Every week we email you a presentation to help facilitate your learning journey. Each presentation has either a theoretical or practical emphasis. Homework is issued each week to help prepare you for each presentation, so you get the most out of the experience!

The Movement Academy (TMA) has been one of the greatest investments I’ve made into my coaching career. TMA has deepened my understanding of ecological dynamics and made me a better coach. The team at Emergence does a great job of meeting you where you are as a practitioner and curating a learning experience that is unique to you. I cannot speak more highly of this experience!

The Movement Academy was truly the most individualized learning experience of my life. It was incredible! At the beginning, the faculty listened to my goals and together we crafted my curriculum. At every juncture throughout my journey, the faculty pushed me beyond the limits of my current understanding. Through in-depth feedback & interactive discussions, I was constantly challenged as a sport movement skill analyst and coach. The Movement Academy not only galvanized my lens on sport movement skill, but they helped me reach a new plateau of understanding as both a sport movement skill analyst & coach. While my journey is far from over, The Movement Academy has truly helped me plot a course for the future.

It is great to see the S&C community beginning to appreciate the importance of skill acquisition and transfer of training. This has been in no small part due to the excellent work of my buddy Shawn Myszka, and the team at Emergence. I look forward to seeing how the profession expands over the coming years – with a growing influence on athlete performance.

Joining the Movement Academy was the most important investment I have ever made in my coaching career to date. The personal and group mentoring I received from Tyler, Shawn, and the rest of the team was world-class. I would highly recommend this course to really discover where you are in your coaching and where you could potentially go.
