Experts agree that physical literacy is the foundation for achievement in sport. It’s also essential for supporting active, healthy lifestyles. When kids are young, the multi-sport approach is the best for developing their physical literacy.

(The few exceptions would be acrobatic sports such as gymnastics and figure skating.)
