A Race to Somewhere
Nothing is more important than delivering a coordinated message to parents, teachers, and students about the importance of physical literacy.
The NAPL interpretation of Physical Literacy is- The ability, balance,confidence, desire, and explorative nature to be active and healthy for life. It is the belief that all children should develop the necessary fundamental movement skills that help them to not only gain physical health, but also support their social/emotional health. It is an understanding of where food comes from, the importance of good nutrition to help the body grow, and how to prepare fresh, tasty snacks/meals. All of our programs incorporate mindfulness as a tool help children and adults learn, and master self-regulation.
Kids need to run, jump, swim, kick, throw, catch, fall. These are the fundamental movement skills necessary for the developing athlete.
If you can’t perform these fundamental movements, you will not be able to participate in many aspects of movement for life.
This program and curriculum helps students become well informed, confident, energized individuals. Find our more about how you can bring P.L.U.S.™ programming into your school or organization.
