"Physical Literacy is the ability to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the development of the whole child!"

The International Physical Literacy Association, May 2014. Tweet

What We Do:

Using our specialised gymnastic and hand equipment we aim to develop your child’s physical literacy which is a collection of basic movement and sports skills.

RUNNING, JUMPING, SKIPPING, CATCHING, THROWING, KICKING, BALANCE, STRENGTH, SPEED, AGILITY, FLEXIBILITY and CARDIO VASCULAR FITNESS are examples of these skills.

The earlier your child learns these skills correctly the more confident they become to participate in ALL sports. This confidence will affect every aspect of their life including academic and social skills.

Research has shown that without physical literacy children are more likely to be physically inactive, which can lead to lower self esteem, poor social skills, lower academic achievement and possible health problems.
