What is Physical Literacy?
A physically literate person has the ability to move in a variety of ways - jumping, running, turning, twisting - with balance, agility, and coordination. A physically literate person is competent in core sports skills like throwing, catching and striking. A physically literate person is more likely to enjoy all sorts of physical activity, from team to individual sports, and to stay active throughout their life.
KIDSPORTS embraces the physical literacy model because it recognizes that children play to have FUN; allows all children to be physically active; is a pathway to excellence from playground or gymnasium to podium, and promotes a lifelong love of physical activity.
The Competition Not Conflict Program (CNC) promotes positive competition by empowering athletes, coaches, and community members to understand, prevent, and resolve conflict. CNC, at the University of Oregon, combines big-time athletics with world-class academics to change conflict's footprint in sports.
