Physical activity is a lot more fun when we’re physically literate. If we want children to be active for life, ideally they will need to develop physical literacy at a young age during the early stages of Long-Term Athlete Development: Active Start, FUNdamentals, and Learn to Train. Physicalliteracy.ca offers coaches, recreation professionals, and health practitioners access to a wide range of resources that can help people become physically literate.
