This is an early years development point that helps to introduce and promote the ADAPT principles of physical and mental health, competence and confidence at an early age, and to check that the young practitioner is on a positive, informed path with his or her training.
The focus here is on the young practitioner’s ability to perform basic movements with a reasonable level of technical skill and an understanding of safe practice, respect for themselves, others and their environment, teamwork and a willingness to learn. The Junior Award is comprised of achieving competence in various areas of practical movement skills, with the Junior ADAPT receiving stamp awards for each area completed.
We recommend young practitioners complete the Junior ADAPT more than once so as to demonstrate continued progress in their training.
The Junior ADAPT Training Day teaches participants to:
Respect themselves and other practitioners at all times
Focus on working towards achieving a set task or skill through practice
Move well and healthily, being aware of their bodies and their limits
Be aware of high quality in movement, training and behaviour
To understand the importance of learning and constant self-improvement
