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.

progression

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE WHAT SWIM LEVEL IS RIGHT FOR YOUR CHILD? our progression chart and level  Use descriptions on page 15 & 16. If you have observed your child in the water, use the descriptions on the following pages to determine which level is right for your child. With the exception of Star Leadership 7, our unparented swim programs have two levels in each swim class. Once your child can confidently complete the skills in the first level they will move to the next (for example, once Bobbers successfully complete their skills, they move to Floaters). Depending on skill level, your child can be enrolled in the second level to start.

View your child’s lesson or ask your child’s swim instructor on the last day of lessons where to place your child for the next session.

  

Use your child’s online swim report card to determine what skills match which level. Contact your local YMCA and speak with a certified swim instructor.

Book a swim assessment with one of our aquatics team members or drop-in during our regular swim lessons - it’s free! If your child is under 8 years old, you must be in the water with your child during the assessment.

OTTERS & SEALS AGE:6Y - 14Y

DOLPHINS & SWIMMERS AGE:6Y - 14Y

Your beginner-level swimmer will learn foundational swimming skills that will be applied throughout their future aquatic activities. They will improve their body awareness and motor skills as they submerge, kick, roll and jump in the water. Otters will learn to go under water and glide on top of the water. Seals will use flutter kicks and rolling the body from side to side for streamlined movement through the water.

Dive into aquatics with the Dolphins and Swimmers program, designed to encourage your child to swim distances as great as 15 metres using common crawl strokes. Dolphins will coordinate arms, legs and breathing for smooth propulsion during front and back crawl. At the Swimmers level, participants will improve front and back strokes, endurance and treading water skills. 120969

DOLPHINS & SWIMMERS AGE:6Y - 14Y

STAR LEVELS 1 & 2 AGE:6Y - 14Y

Dive into aquatics with the Dolphins and Swimmers program, designed to encourage your child to swim distances as great as 15 metres using common crawl strokes. Dolphins will coordinate arms, legs and breathing for smooth propulsion during front and back crawl. At the Swimmers level, participants will improve front and back strokes, endurance and treading water skills.

In Star 1, swimmers learn to whip on their backs, and will perform a 75 metre endurance swim. In Star 2 , they will learn to whip kick on their front, eggbeater as surface support, and swim 100 metres. By the end of level 4, participants will learn elementary backstroke, breaststroke, sidestroke and increase their swimming distance to 350 metres. Optional items provide opportunities to explore competitive swimming, synchronized swimming, water polo and aquafit.

CLIMBING

CHILDREN, YOUTH & ADULT PROGRAMS

Shake up your routine, connect with someone new, and get the motivation you need to take your fitness to the next level.

Embrace the challenge and fun of the wall.

Climb on your own. Our climbing walls are always supervised by certified climbing instructors who are available to help climbers belay, provide tips and answer questions. Auto-belay equipment is available at all of our climbing wall locations. Visit us online or see our app for schedules.

Discover the entire wall. Take our First Ascents Belay Class (itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free for members ages 14+!). Our First Accents class allows individuals to belay others during open climbs. With access to self-belay equipment, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to use the whole wall and avoid waiting in line for auto-belay equipment!

A waiver must be signed by an adult or parent/guardian before climbing.
