FHP314 - Applied Physical Literacy

This course continues the development of physical literacy delivery skills by presenting physical literacy within a sport framework. Reflecting the Sport for Life model of Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) adopted by all nationally funded Sport Governing Bodies in Canada, students learn about activities that use sport to develop physical literacy in a progressive manner across a variety of environments: outdoor/field, pool/water, indoor gymnasium and ice/snow. During the course, students will acquire an understanding of the importance of using sport as a vehicle for development of physical literacy. Students will consider training and coaching activities that can encourage and enhance physical literacy in young athletes within each of the four environments.
