Every parent, teacher, coach and caretaker needs to understand Fundamental Perceptual Motor Skills (FPMS). They are the building blocks of sport and physical activity. They don't develop automatically. Children without FPMS are severely disadvantaged when it comes to the sport and physical and psychological experiences they will enjoy during a lifetime. Through early purposeful play experiences, children will develop the sensory and movement abilities to locomote and balance, catch and intercept, throw and strike, kick and punt and therefore every opportunity to develop a love of sport and health and fitness.
