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 stay physically active into later life. Your role at this stage is to encourage them to seek out opportunities to be involved. This could be taking part competitively or for fun, coaching or volunteering.

Physical activity can also be a great stress reliever, which will come in handy around exam times and other high-pressure situations.
