Physical Literacy for Educators: Position Paper

Physical literacy serves an important foundation for many sports (e.g., LTAD) and education (e.g., provincial PE curriculum) policies in Canada. This paper provides an overview of physical literacy through the lens of an educator and attempts to bridge a significant gap between sport and physical education. The working definition that is provided examines physical literacy from the perspective of a quality physical education program and the role that such programs play in the development of the whole child.
