Physical Literacy & PE

Bring physical literacy to your school or organization. Change the culture of your school or organization to happy, healthy with physical literacy.

National PE Standards

The Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE America)’s National Standards define what a student should know and be able to do as result of a quality physical education program. States and local school districts across the country use the National Standards to develop or revise existing standards, frameworks and curricula.

See the 5 Standards listed below – and NAPL’s solution.

Standard 1 – The physically literate individual demonstrates competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns.

  • NAPL provides direct programming opportunities for children to develop the L.O.B fundamental movement skills (Locomotive, Object Control, Body Management)

Standard 2 – The physically literate individual applies knowledge of concepts, principles, strategies and tactics related to movement and performance.

  • NAPL has deliberately written curriculum to help children experience the “crossover effect” of applying the individual movement skills and team concepts that translate from one sport to the next.

Standard 3 – The physically literate individual demonstrates the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness.

  • NAPL recognizes that to approach wellness properly – you have to approach it holistically.  Our comprehensive approach emphasizes the concepts of sport as play, food as fuel and mindfulness as happiness.

Standard 4 – The physically literate individual exhibits responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others.

  • NAPL takes a developmentally appropriate approach to training, programming and curriculum that infuses core components of sportsmanship, self-regulation and leadership skills.

Standard 5 – The physically literate individual recognizes the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and/or social interaction.

  • NAPL Mission: We aim to inspire a healthy, active world in which all people have the ability to move, the confidence to play and the desire to affect genuine wellness for generations to come.
  • NAPL Vision: Our success is measured in the number of children who have the ability, behavior, confidence, desire, and explorative nature to be active for life. We believe in collaboration and a relentless pursuit of fun through play.
