This comprehensive physical literacy guide is a great starting point for any teacher or coach! The manual explains what physical literacy is and gives examples and lessons on how to improve specific skills related to sports including soccer, basketball, handball, lacrosse, football, cricket, and athletics.
Why is physical literacy important? Physical Literacy encourages the development of fundamental movement skills (such as running, jumping, throwing) through fun, age-related activities.
"Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life."
- The International Physical Literacy Association, May 2014
After learning these essential skills, students will learn how to transfer these skills into sports-specific skills.
The manual includes explanations, directions and images/diagrams to support comprehension. Coaching points (how to get the right technique, troubleshooting) are also included.
