Workshop DescriptionCentral East Physical Literacy Project

Now more than ever, physical literacy is being recognized as an important component of best practices in the sport, recreation, health and education sectors within Canada. The goal of the Physical Literacy 101 Workshop is to provide a broad introduction to the concepts of physical literacy and how they can be integrated into your programs. Participants will take part in an interactive session that will help them define what exactly physical literacy means, and how they can encourage continual improvement and development of physical literacy skills across the lifespan. This workshop is being hosted with thanks to the RBC Learn To Play Project in collaboration with the Central East Physical Literacy Project.
