Subject Description
This course continues the development of physical literacy delivery skills by presenting physical literacy within a variety of environments and frameworks.  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.  Classes will be primarily group and individual learning in a practical setting within a variety of environments.
