SAQ® Training is a system of progressive exercise and instruction aimed at developing fundamental motor abilities, balance, coordination and ultimately complete control of body movement which in turn will improve sporting performance.
All coaches and parents want youngsters and children to move with competence and confidence and to develop the desire to participate in sport and physical activity.
All youngsters and children whatever their ability, age, size, shape or aspiration can improve their fundamental movement ability and build the foundations on which future sporting performance is based.
This course will enable coaches to give children, the opportunity to enjoy the variety, challenge and performance improvements that SAQ® Training can provide.

Recent Testimonials / Feedback
“The impact the SAQ had on the players within Grantham Table Tennis Academy was huge. Those players that really started to focus on developing their off the table movement started to see the benefits as the translated to their practise and matchplay. It also allows the players to have really good focus from the start of the session as the dynamic flexibility gives them specific areas to develop rather than being too generic. I would highly recommend this to be used in all clubs”
