Teaching Exercise to Children is for all those individuals who prescribe exercise programmes to children of ages 10-16, in schools, gyms and after-school clubs. The only book on the market to combine both current theoretical and practical aspects, its content is linked to the Health and Fitness National Occupational Standards and the Qualifications Framework requirements for Teaching Exercise and Fitness for Children. The author backs up the theory with multi-skills session plans, which are graded by age and illustrated with photos and clear illustrations. With sections on child development and the legal issues involved in coaching children, this book is the bible for all those studying or already teaching exercise to young people.
