    Dynamic Warm Up and Flexibility for Sport

    Learn how to teach a dynamic warm up to your athletes and why it is so
    important to ready them for their sporting movements. Discover when flexibility
    training should be done and why some stretches are more effective than
    others. How long should you expect your athletes to stretch and is yoga
    or pilates useful? Find out the answers to these questions and discover
    what can get the most from your nervous system and muscles.

    Body Image in Boys and Girls

    Presented by Dr. Dean Kriellaars, PHD

    What is my role? And what can I do to provide a positive environment where
    a healthy body image can exist in the context of striving for performance
    where body composition (fat mass, muscle mass and bone mass) are indicators
    of performance. This seminar will provide current research on youth body
    image and body composition issues including statistics on current trends,
    disorders and associated warning signs, common misconceptions, especially
    as it relates to nutrition, and special issues related to athletes. This
    seminar will address what is and should be modified - the body image or
    the body.

    Run, Jump and Throw

    Presented by
    Athletics Manitoba

    Running, jumping and throwing are fundamental movement patterns that are
    prerequisite motor skills for most physical activities. This nationally
    recognized grassroots development program helps create a favourable learning
    environment by introducing fun games and activities that help children
    learn the basic technical elements of track and field.

    The Coaching Manitoba clinic on November 18 will be instructed by a Master
    Learning Facilitator and give hands-on exposure to the program by learning
    a lesson from each of the basic disciplines of running, jumping and throwing.

    Presented by Coaching

    Making ethical decisions is included in the Introduction to Competition A

    of Ethics of the National Coaching Certification Program and expected standards
    of behaviour for coaches trained and certified in the NCCP.
