carnegieXchange: RAMPAGE & MOGBA: Emerging Frameworks for Youth Athletic Development
A carnegieXchange Seminar from Professor Kevin Till and Professor Dave Morley
The implementation of youth athletic development programmes aims to improve health, physical activity and performance of all youth. Contemporary youth athletic development models suggest that a broad range of physical and psycho-social competencies should be developed in youth. However, few resources are available for coaches and practitioners that describe ‘how’ to achieve, assess and evaluate these outcomes. This session will present two emerging frameworks to achieve this: RAMPAGE and MOGBA. RAMPAGE is a coaching session framework that provides practitioners with information on what can be planned and delivered and when within a coaching session, which can be applied across multiple ages and stages of development within multiple contexts (e.g., physical education, talent development). RAMPAGE is a project led by Kevin Till in collaboration with the United Kingdom Strength & Conditioning Association, Leeds Rhinos RLFC and Leeds Rhinos Foundation. MOGBA (Movement-Oriented Games Based Assessment) aims to consider what comes after Fundamental Movement Skills development in children and bridge children’s movement into sport within 8-12 year olds. The project involves the design and assessment of the feasibility of a movement based assessment tool through games. MOGBA is a project led by Dave Morley in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust and Nike’s ‘Made to Play’ initiative.
Dave Morley is currently Professor of Children’s Sport, Physical Activity and Physical Education in the Academy of Sport and Physical Activity at Sheffield Hallam University, UK. He is about to take up a post at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia, as Professor of Sport Coaching and Development.
