The ABC's of Physical Literacy

In the same way that children learn their alphabet as a stepping stone to reading and becoming literate, children should also develop their physical skills to become physically literate. Canadian Sport for Life defines being physically literate as a child having learned basic human movements, fundamental movement skills, and introductory sports skills before the start of their adolescent growth spurt. Three critical physical skills to develop are known as the ABCs of physical literacy: Agility, Balance and Coordination. Parents are welcome to download this Active Start physical literacy flyer.
