About Physical Literacy Movement Preparation

The Developing Physical Literacy Movement Preparation Guide is a resource from Canadian Sport for Life that aims to prepare the body for movement by incorporating and improving fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills into activities.

By participating in movement preparation sessions:

• Children become better athletes

• Children strengthen their bodies through increased participation in physical activity

• Children prepare their muscles for immediate activity and develop the skills and confidence to safely participate in unfamiliar activities

• Children acquire the skills, confidence and motivation to overcome challenges

…because they’re developing physical literacy.

About Canadian Sport for Life

Sport for Life (S4L) is a movement to improve the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada through improved athlete training and better integration between all stakeholders in the sport system, including sport organizations, education, recreation and health. 

The vision behind S4L is to reshape how we support sport and train athletes at all levels in Canada – from children to adults, from towns to cities, from provinces and regions through to the National level. In realizing this vision, we aim to keep more Canadians active for life with recreational sport and physical activity, and at the same time help Canadians in all sports win more medals internationally.
