Physical Literacy 101

Physical activity is a lot more fun when you are physically literate. Now more than ever, physical literacy is being recognized as an important component of best practices in the sport, recreation, health and education sectors within Canada. Unfortunately, not everyone knows or understands what exactly physical literacy is.

The goal of the Physical Literacy 101 Workshop is to cover a broad introduction to the concept of physical literacy. During this half-day workshop, participants will take part in an interactive session that will help them to define what exactly physical literacy means, and how they can integrate its concepts to improve their programs. The workshop will touch on the Physical Literacy Assessment for Youth (PLAY) Tools and show how these can be used to track development of physical literacy skills to help participants improve where needed. Participants will leave with a solid understanding of what physical literacy is and knowledge of how they can encourage continual improvement and development of physical literacy skills across the lifespan.
