Play great: physical literacy and you, greater Edmonton area team

Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. Watch this six minute "what is physical literacy" video and read this brief explanation for additional information.

  • identifying, creating and sharing great resources,
  • advancing appropriate training of front line staff,
  • promoting, implementing and evaluating programs, services, amenities, and
  • advancing policy as it relates to physical literacy.
