Defining Physical Literacy

Physical literacy is defined by the foundation of skills or tools, social/cognitive, behavioral, and fitness related, that children need to possess in order to receive the inherent benefits of taking part in physical activity for life-long enjoyment and success (Lloyd & Tremblay, 2010). 

Physical literacy is NOT just about getting kids to move, but getting kids to move as they were designed to move…with efficiency, skill, resiliency and with the highest possible level of literacy. 

Coming soon will be the introduction of my first "Movement Ambassador". You are not going to want to miss what this individual from Stanford University has to say about physical literacy in our youth. 

It is beholding of us all to create an environment where a basic entitlement of all people is physical well-being.
