What is Physical Literacy at this stage?

Children need to develop their basic physical skills during this age phase. The key is to develop a range of travelling movements, body management skills and ability to control objects such as beanbags, bats and balls.

What can I do to play my part?

As a Young Leader you could be helping small children to develop their skills and confidence. You could make sure that they have a great time taking part. By working alongside teachers, coaches you will get the chance to become a great role model.
