Synergistic development of muscular strength and motor skill competency is central to Long Term Athletic Development. However, these qualities need to be developed in a logical and progressive manner and training methods need to be developmentally appropriate, engaging, and enjoyable for young athletes to help them build a positive association with strength and conditioning based activities. This article aims to provide a resource for coaches to utilise when developing the athletic motor skill competencies (AMSC) in youth, including game-based activities, and a more structured resistance training curriculum.
