Physical Literacy
Physical literacy and movement skills like running, kicking and throwing are essential for optimal growth and development. Without these skills, children and youth withdraw from physical activity and sport and may turn to sedentary or unhealthy lifestyle choices.

Learning to be active at a young age is extremely important because active kids become active adults – who are positive role models.

What is physical literacy?

Physical literacy is the development of fundamental movement skills that allow individuals to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of activities that benefit the healthy development of the whole person. Physical literacy also includes an individual’s ability to “read” what is going on around them in an activity setting - and react appropriately (Physical and Health Education Canada).

Visit the York Region website for ideas on how to get active.
