PHYSICAL LITERACY

Physical literacy is the mastery of a range of fundamental movement skills that enable and encourage lifelong participation in physical and sporting activities. It’s the philosophy that underpins physical education in schools, and more and more, it’s being seen as the most effective antidote to childhood obesity and the many problems associated with our increasingly sedentary lifestyles.

Sportball’s curriculum teaches Physical Literacy through our Methodology. All games, activities and instructions have a purpose and expected outcome. Our goal is to build a child’s confidence and competence on and off the field and target  three key areas of Childhood development.
