Physical literacy is an emerging concept across Europe described as the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to maintain physical activity throughout life. An individual who is physically literate moves with poise, economy and confidence in a wide variety of physically challenging situations and can articulate essential qualities that influence personal movement performance and principles of embodied health. This presentation will provide an overview of the key concepts of physical literacy and provide applications.
