"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
Physical activity is a lot more fun when we’re physically literate. If we want children to be active for life, ideally they will need to develop physical literacy at a young age during the early stages of Long-Term Athlete Development: Active Start, FUNdamentals, and Learn to Train. Physicalliteracy.ca offers coaches, recreation professionals, and health practitioners access to a wide range of resources that can help people become physically literate.
A LIFELONG JOURNEY, essential to an active, healthy life.
PoCo Active works in collaboration with the national leading Sport For Life society and the City of Port Coquitlam to provide intiatives that build higher degrees of health and physical literacy in our community members. We are a network of key stakeholders coordinating across multiple sectors; this includes Sport, Recreation, Health, and School District.
