KIDSPORTS is again partnering with Cesar Chavez Elementary to bring the Physical Literacy Project to children attending Cesar Chavez Elementary in February of 2017. Children will learn movement and motor skills through fun, games, and activities that provide opportunities for children to learn to move their bodies with confidence and under control. The Physical Literacy Project's goal is to engage and motivate children to develop a lifelong pursuit of physical activity.
