Active for Life is a national initiative about physical literacy, and we’ve partnered with the Coaching Association of Canada to provide information for coaches to learn about physical literacy and the long-term athlete development model that is at the core of healthy sports for kids.

The articles below are written with parents in mind, so they are great to share with your parents. The more parents understand the benefits of LTAD, the easier it will be for coaches.

We’ve also included some Facebook and Twitter posts that you can use to share the importance of physical literacy and long-term athlete development.
