Move and Play through Physical Literacy cards (also available in French) are intended to assist activity leaders interested in integrating Physical Literacy into a variety of programs, activities and environments. They can be used in a variety of applications including the home, school or community settings. Over 75 cards are included in this set, focusing on Active Start, FUNdamentals, and Learn to Train stages of the Long Term Athlete Development Model.

Move and Play through Traditional Games (free) was developed as a collaboration between the Alberta Native Friendship Centres Association and the Be Fit For Life Network to share traditional games with our partners in Alberta. The resources are designed to support the sharing of these games with children, youth, and families. The games in the resources link traditional culture and values to physical literacy and fundamental movement skills. See Move and Play through Traditional Games: Video

MOVE&PLAY Through Winter, Eh? (free) was created to highlight the importance of outdoor play in the winter and to provide some fun ways to do so. Learning Fundamental Movement Skills, such as sliding and gliding, and engaging in fun outdoor play in the snow are important elements to developing physical literacy in Canada.
