Facing COVID-19 Together

Even if it feels like the world has come to a standstill, that doesn’t mean you should.

We’ve always believed in the power of movement and a healthy lifestyle. Now that many of us find ourselves isolated at home, cut off from each other and more sedentary than usual, movement has become more important than ever. 

Physical Literacy at Home

Sport for Life has developed a series of short videos called “Physical Literacy  at Home” that help support parents and guardians and kids to develop physical literacy at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. These activities are selected from our PLAYBuilder resource. We create two videos per week and will provide a new video to this page on Tuesday and Thursday for the next number of weeks, so please check back often and feel free to share.

Our partners have some great activities as well:

Organizations across the country have stepped up to develop and provide resources and activities to help keep you and your family active during this challenging time. On this page you will find a collection of organizations that have resources aligned with quality sport and physical literacy development. Many are targeted at groups, and as long as you’re practicing social distancing, there’s no reason why you and those you care about can’t continue to be active together. If you can’t physically be together,  you can still “meet up” and engage in virtual activities. Modifications have been made to existing activities to address the recommendations made by our governments and health care experts, and encourage you to do the same.
