Physical Literacy Re:Defined

If you work or volunteer to inspire kids who love to move, you’re in the right place!

We all have a role to play when it comes to raising physically literate kids. And though it might sound complicated, it doesn’t have to be.

We’re collecting our favourite resources from around the country to help you understand physical literacy, why it’s so essential and how you can use it in your work. We’ll be having a little fun along the way and we hope you’ll play along.

Come back often! We’re adding new goodies all the time. And if you like what you see, send your friends. Raising active kids really does take a village.

Physical literacy is a journey that begins when kids have the opportunity to develop the skills, confidence and love of movement they need to be active for life.
