Motor competence meeting – 17 November 2022
3rd October 2022
We are pleased to announce that there will be a meeting of the International Motor Development Research Consortium UK & Ireland (I-MDRC) Motor Development Group and the BASES Paediatric Exercise Special Interest Group on Thursday 17 November 2022 at Coventry University, as a satellite event to the BASES Annual Conference 2022
The purpose of this meeting is to bring together those working in and around motor competence for the benefit of children’s, health, physical activity and sport and exercise performance as an adjunct to the BASES Annual Conference 2022. The purpose of the day is to bring existing members of the UK & Ireland Motor Competence group and members of the BASES Paediatric Exercise Special Interest Group together, alongside other individuals who may be working in and around the field, to understand the work each group/individual/university is undertaking, to share wider networks of stakeholders and work towards collaborative bids for future research activity.
There will also be an opportunity for some postgraduate research students or early career researchers to present their work. We would see this as an opportunity to present in a supportive environment where the focus would be on the audience providing mentorship type feedback.
