Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. It’s a necessary element in setting children up with the skills they need to be active as they grow up.
Developed by The Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group (HALO), the Canadian Assessment of Physical Literacy (CAPL) is designed to help foster physical literacy among children ages 8 to 12 as outlined in the newly created Physical Literacy Consensus Statement.
To support children on their physical literacy journeys, it is important to assess where their individual physical literacy levels stand. The CAPL is the first comprehensive tool available to accurately and reliably assess a broad spectrum of skills and abilities that contribute to and characterize a child’s physical literacy level. Visit the CAPL website to learn how to complete the assessment protocols, upload and interpret the results.
Do you want to know how to assess the physical literacy of children 8 to 12 years of age in a valid and reliable way? Then this webinar is for you!
Through funding from the Trillium Foundation, ParticipACTION and the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group will be offering a FREE webinar on physical literacy and the Canadian Assessment of Physical Literacy (CAPL). Our free webinar is designed for recreation leaders, coaches, and parents to learn about physical literacy and the Canadian Assessment of Physical Literacy (CAPL). Attendees will be provided with a brief history of how the CAPL was developed and why it is a valid and reliable assessment of physical literacy for children 8 to 12 years of age. Attendees will also learn the benefits of using the CAPL within their program, including how assessment results can enhance program delivery.
