WE INCORPORATE PHYSICAL LITERACY INTO ALL OUR PROGRAMS

PHYSICAL LITERACY

101

Have you heard of the term physical literacy? We don’t take the term lightly. Physical literacy means developing the foundational skills and confidence required to participate in regular physical activity and play a sport. YMCA programs include intentional activities that help build physical literacy to allow your child to participate in whatever activity or sport they choose. Those who are physically literate are comfortable in all physical environments: on the ground (eg. running, throwing balls); in the water (eg. swimming); on snow and ice (eg. skating and skiing); in the air (eg. moving in the air without support - ie., jumping/ spinning in the air); and in the outdoors (eg. movement on uneven surfaces).

Start early. It’s important to build a foundation of physical literacy. The early years are the best time to start. You can continue to build these skills through life.

4

Be active for life.

It’s proven that people who are physically literate are more likely to be active for life.

WWW.YMCACALGARY.ORG


PHYSICAL LITERACY AGES & STAGES Start by developing a good base of foundational skills. Developing physical literacy skills is progressive, and different at each developmental stage.

Once a foundation of skills is built, youth can choose to build specific skills to participate in competitive sport. In these stages, youth can begin to develop sport-specific skills while still continuing to build physical literacy skills.

OR skip competitive sport and simply choose physical activities to be active for life. Once a good foundation of physical literacy is built, anyone can confidently participate in a variety of sports and activities - with the goal of being active for life!

BOYS 0 - 6 GIRLS 0 - 6 Learn basic movement skills and link them together to play. Develop habits for being active.

BOYS 12-16 GIRLS 11 - 15 TRAIN TO TRAIN Build aerobic base and consolidate sport-specific skills.

BOYS 6 - 9 GIRLS 6 - 8 Learn fundamental movement skills and build agility, balance and coordination.

BOYS 9- 12 GIRLS 8- 11 Convert fundamental movement skills to fundamental sport- specific skillls.

BOYS 16 - 23 GIRLS 15 - 21

BOYS 19 GIRLS 18+

TRAIN TO COMPETE Train to solidify sportspecific/position-specific skills and physical capabilities.

Refine skills with the ultimate goal to win.

TRAIN TO WIN

AGES 12+ ACTIVE FOR LIFE

Life-long participation in a variety of sport or recreational activities.
