What is Physical Literacy at this stage?

During this phase, school/college/work often plays an important part in life. Young people have a choice here to play recreationally with friends, competitively in their chosen sport, or engage in coaching and volunteering opportunities.

What can I do to play my part?

It is important that young adults continue to participate in physical activity into later life. As participation can be in many different forms, it is important that your offer is appropriate, provides choice and also offers opportunities to engage in coaching or volunteering.

How can you make sure that you are catering for all different needs and supporting individuals to carry on down their chosen route?
