When a class has been cancelled due to instructor illness or weather conditions, a class will be added on at the end of the session. If this is not possible, you will be issued a refund in the amount of the missed class.

Oops, changed your plans?:

A refund will be issued if we receive applicable withdrawal notification. Programs and lessons require five (5) or more days’ notice prior to course start date.

PHYSICAL LITERACY

PHYSICAL LITERACY

Physical literacy is the key to being

ACTIVE FOR LIFE What is Physical Literacy?

Physical Literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. (The International Physical Literacy Association, May 2014) Physical activity is a lot more fun when we’re physically literate. If we want children to be active for life, they need to develop physical literacy at a young age. Physicalliteracy.ca offers coaches, recreation professionals and health practitioners access to a wide range of resources that can help people become physically literate.

What are Fundamental Movement Skills?

Fundamental movement skills are the foundation for an active life. This list contains 25 fundamental movement skills which children can learn:

9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9

Balancing Catching Climbing Cycling Dodging Dribbling Hopping Jumping

Striking with an implement Striking with hand Swimming Throwing Trapping with an implement Trapping with feet/body Tumbling Walking

This symbol denotes Physical Literacy based programs that focus on the development and enhancement of FUNdamental Movement Skills. These essential building blocks instill confidence that comes from skill competence and provides motivation to maintain a life-long attachment to sport, recreation and physical activity. SUMMER
