PLAY GREAT provides an avenue for interested partners to work together to advance physical literacy through:

  • identifying, creating when necessary 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.
