Physical Literacy


“Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life.”      – International Physical Literacy Association, May, 2014

Dr. Dean Kriellaars

If there’s someone in this country who knows physical literacy, it’s Dr. Dean Kriellaars. The exercise physiologist advocates tirelessly for it because of the positive impact it can have on our society. “Learning to move is as important as reading and writing skills, and the ability to work with numbers.”
